It’s been a minute now since Whitney dropped a new album. Their latest, their debut record Light Upon The Lake, came out in 2016. The gears appear to be turning, though, as the band has just shared a video for the new song, “FTA.”
Even though it’s a short track, it takes its time building up. The song is mostly instrumental, save for the falsetto vocals that creep in near the end of the two-and-a-half-minute track. Before that, the song is carried by fingerpicked acoustic guitar before the introduction of light drumming and a soothing slide guitar line. It’s a fine continuation of the intimate and catchy standard they set on Light Upon The Lake, and one that teases a promising sophomore effort.
Speaking of which, a new album definitely could be on the way soon. Back in February, they tweeted, “Whitney announce sophomore effort ‘WeamDreaver,'” then they followed that joke up with, “This is just a dumb joke but in all seriousness the record is 100% recorded with a title that we took seriously.” The band also previously said of progress on the new record, “We’re just making sure that it’s every bit as powerful as the last one.”
