W.H.I.T.E. is Cory Thomas Hanson. That is not him pictured above. Above is his picture on his twitter and if I passed up an opportunity to include a T-Rex on this blog than I would be a failure of a human being. You know this, I know this, Jack Horner knows this and ten-year-old-me knows this.
The CalArt grad, known by the unassigned acronym (at least to me currently it is), W.H.I.T.E. has a falsetto that pierces through the first half “Can’t Fight The Feeling.” I say first half because this is a song that is very much two parts that wonderfully cohere to the whole. The first half plucks along a very catchy electronic pop tune before it fuzzes into a second half reminiscent of a seventies psychedelic rock track replete with a guitar shred of the era. Really, it’s all fantastic and I encourage you to bang that play button.
Currently, Mr. Hanson is releasing his music through Aagoo Records (Colin Stetson) and the debut album is available to stream in it’s entirety. Click here if you don’t believe me.
