Whitehall has released their new single titled ‘Lost And Found’ along with the new video (below). Dark and quietly brooding, with an lush guitar chord progression that is simply magnificent, the slow drive buildup gives an ambience that drives the song and enthralls the listener for having found something so original.
“Lost and Found is one of the more pensive songs we have ever written. We almost wanted it to sound like it has a little dust on it, and our first experiment with a melodeon (we think that’s what its called) serves to blow off some of that dust and bring the listener into the more upbeat outro feeling some mixture of warmth and unease all at once. It’s both about ego loss and the struggle to reparent yourself as a new stage of life approaches fast.”
Whitehall is an indie rock four-piece band from Charleston, SC. Paddy McKiernan (vocals, guitar), Brennan Clark (bass), Davis Rowe (drums), and Avery Greeson (guitar) met while attending the College of Charleston and got their start writing songs in a dorm room.
After four years spent in the South Carolina DIY scene playing house shows throughout the state, the band recorded their debut album, ‘Ocean Fiction,’ and embarked on their first tour on the East Coast with a live show that is at once frenetic and introspective. In the years that followed, Whitehall recorded and released their sophomore effort ‘Swordfish Catcher’ and received praise and playlist placement from national publications like NPR, Alternative Press, and American Songwriter.
This album saw their sound shift from bouncy, melody-laden indie, to something grittier, with distorted guitars and imaginative lyricism that more closely resembles acts like Pavement and Car Seat Headrest.
