Denver folk-rock outfit Whitacre, whose music combines thought-provoking lyrics and beautiful musicianship delivered through energetic and captivating live performances, will release a five-song EP later this year; today, the band unleashes “Some Days,” their new single, to tide us over until then.
The track is Whitacre’s third single and showcases their strong lyrical craft. “Joe Richmond and Nicholas Webber did an amazing job capturing the rawness in the recording that is at the song’s core,” says frontman Paul Whitacre of the EP’s producers. “What I love about ‘Some Days’ is that while it started off as a simple acoustic song, after playing it live over and over again, it started to develop with instruments like the accordion, which we don’t normally use. Also, Joe’s work on the mixing and mastering is incredible,” adds band member Mark Cunningham. “’Some Days’ is still really only the beginning for Whitacre.”
“I’m not disappointed with where I am, just question the path that I chose,” contemplates vocalist Whitacre in the verse, his gritty voice one of three, whose harmonic blend tugs at every heartstring. With more than 70,000 streams of their debut single, over 100 sold-out shows under their proverbial belts, and an EP on the way which is sure to please, we’d say they’ve definitely chosen well.
