WHITE HINTERLAND Plots Tour with Dosh, Shares MP3 and Kairos Pre-Order Deal

In January, we introduced you to a wholly new sound from WHITE HINTERLAND, a progressive, washy R&B, with a playful, dubby backbone. T’was no fluke, fellow music enthusiast. With Kairos, Casey Dienel and musical partner Shawn Creeden have gracefully dived headlong into a pool of gorgeous, cerebral, danceable sounds.

The latest taster jam from Kairos is “No Logic,” which, as Gorilla vs. Bear said today, is “further evidence of Casey Dienel’s unexpected but seamless transformation into seductive minimal R&B/pop star.” And believe it or not, the herky-jerky-dub of “No Logic” is actually built around an acid-fried ukulele melody. Listen close and you’ll hear it in there. And soon, you will be able to see the live construction of the song, as White Hinterland heads out on a North American tour with Dosh, who will be in support of his own wicked new record.

Download “New Logic” HERE.

WHITE HINTERLAND Announces Kairos LP, Premieres MP3 for “Icarus”

The evolution of WHITE HINTERLAND’s music has been graceful and inspiring, shifting chameleon-like from jazz-tinged chamber-pop to French ye-ye music. Now, with the March 9 release of Kairos (March 8 in the UK), White Hinterland delves into a modern, electronic wash and uncovers a confident, captivating pop voice. And we just feel a little blessed to be along for the ride. Please join us.

Longtime White Hinterland supporter Gorilla Vs. Bear premiered Kairos opener “Icarus” today, saying, “the new record finds Casey Dienel eschewing the jazzier/folk steez of her earlier work in favor of spectral, slinky modern R&B and minimal pop…On the surface, a dramatic shift, but Kairos feels like an undeniably graceful, surprisingly natural step up. ’Icarus’ is the album’s ethereal, spooky/sexy opening track.”

Listen to “Icarus” HERE.

Spring tour dates will be announced soon.
