Whitney – “No Woman”

I heard about retro-folk group Whitney during a random set at SXSW the other day, and as soon as I heard their gorgeous tune “No Woman,” I knew I had stumbled across something incredibly powerful. The track changes moods as it plays on, starting with a yearning, melancholy guitar instrumental and ending with a bold, refined medley of trumpets and violins. Julian Ehrlich’s vocals are saccharine sweet, adding a layer of nostalgia and honeyed passion to an already emotionally drenched track. Among the millions of songs dealing with leaving the familiar and attempting to embrace the unknown, “No Woman” feels like one of the most genuine, swapping out the fear and uncertainty with tenderness.
