Grande Halle de la Villette,
Saturday 29th October 2016
This band is 2016’s anachronistic breath of fresh air. Under the name Whitney, Max Kakacek and Julien Ehrlich, refugees of the dearly missed Smith Westerns, are dipping into an old and abandoned musical goldmine: the one of Bobby Charles and his friendly R’n’B, with Paul Simon-esque vocals, something honest and gently lit, enhanced by a sense of rhythm that would make anybody’s head nod. This band soothes body and mind, and their concerts are imbued with a communicative energy.
