From their upcoming fourth album, Panther in the Dollhouse, due out May 12, 2017, comes Whitehorse’s new single “Boys Like You”.
A slick video filmed by award-winning Edmonton filmmaker Trevor Anderson, the video crackles through a conversation between a man and a woman as they go from green rooms, to video shoots, to a live show with Doucet lamenting wanting the sexy rock n’ roll lifestyle while McClelland hollers, “Boys like you, they live with their mothers, forever, and ever, and ever”.
“The boy is pathetic and a bit desperate, but maybe she senses an air of entitlement somewhere in there,” McClelland explains. “To him she will never be a real person, just a clichéd idea of what he wants, needs, deserves. Not so fast, dipshit.”
It’s a gritty, rhythm-heavy tune that you’ll want to put on repeat for the rest of the day.

I’m Emily Frewin. I remember my dad teaching me how to take care of a record before I knew how to tie my shoes. Laying on the floor of my living room listening at full volume to a new album or bathing in the glory of an old one was how I spent most of my childhood and adolescence. Writing and music have always been important to me, so I’m very excited to be writing for Canadian Beats. I have a dog, a husband, and several children, some of which may or may not be mine. I spend my days fighting off the on-set of dementia by working for a Geomatics company, listening to music, trying to sell my children, watching movies, and planning out how to kidnap Idris Elba. I also own a T-Rex costume.
