Whitney K Shares Two Songs from Upcoming Album 'Two Years'
Listen to "Last Night #2" and "Trans-Canada Oil Boom Blues" now
Published Feb 11, 2021Whitney K, the musical project of Whitehorse-based folk-rocker Konner Whitney, is just over a week away from releasing Two Years, which was named one of Exclaim!'s Most Anticipated Canadian Albums of 2021. Before it arrives on February 19 via Maple Death Records, Whitney has shared two songs from the record: "Last Night #2" and "Trans-Canada Oil Boom Blues."
"Last Night #2" carries a hungover twang with Lou Reed-esque spoke-sung vocals about moonlit debauchery, while "Trans-Canada Oil Boom Blues" is a jangling rock'n'roll tune that looks at Canada's colonial past.
Whitney has also shared a new lyric video for "Last Night #2," directed by bandmate Josh Boguski. Similar to the music's escapist fantasies, the video features grainy stock footage of mountains and icicles, pairing Whitney's words with vivid, wintry landscapes.
Said Boguski in a statement about the video, "Our options for making a music video were limited because of pandemic restrictions, but I was grateful to have access to some open source film archives. The landscape footage was a nice reminder of the vastness beyond my cramped apartment, yet it evokes something deeper when paired with Konner's lyrics. His poetry is absolutely driving the bus."
