All the hallmarks of a classic sound are there: motown harmonies, killer hooks, perfect pop architecture…
Frontman Leo is on top form; his incredible range puts it beyond doubt that he’s one of the finest singers and lyricists on the circuit today.
With haunting lyricism, White relentlessly offload their inner demons into our ears.
White are the closest thing to Futurists British indie has: they’re fast, absurd, irreverent, metallic – positively Ballardian at times, but always with an ear for colour that keeps them from straying into murky territory.
There’s no denying the clean execution of 'Think Too Much', its catchy melody bursting through the kaleidoscopia thanks to complementary stringed fuzz and harmonic basslines ’neath Jake Smallwood’s hardy vocals
At a time when bands are sounding hopelessly homogeneous, there’s something deeply refreshing about White’s constant but cohesive reinvention. Latest track ‘Step Up’ is their least conventional.
What really dazzles is the band’s disarming dexterity through the three and a half minutes. The rhythm tracks are recorded live and the fidgety guitars and basslines weave exhilarating tangents throughout
