Music: Toronto’s Whitehorse plays The Ark on Saturday

Toronto’s rock duo Whitehorse hits the stage at The Ark at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 13. Tickets are $20.

Whitehorse’s brazen sonic breadth encompasses psychedelic surf, arid border rock, lo-fi ingenuity and icy 80s’ sparseness. Luke Doucet’s Gretsch White Falcon and impeccable tone, combined with Melissa McClelland’s blazing vocals and badass P-Bass playing, have made the duo’s sound unmistakably, inventively one of a kind.

The duo’s songwriting is distinguished by its cinematic fiction, full of flawed characters, foiled plans and anti-fairytales that transform real life into sleek, stylized collages of neo-noir drama and high-gloss.

Their new single “Boys Like You” adds hip-hop producers and processed beats, expanding their studio sound with samplers, vintage drum machines and more.
