The Balconies stand before you – teeth bared, eyelashes batting, clothing and hair drenched in sweat. In the blink of an eye, the group has grown from a humble indie pop band to a leather-clad three-headed rock and roll monster, punctuated by 80s hair metal flair.


The classic tale of musical romance continues for Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland, the husband and wife duo behind Whitehorse. One year after their debut, Whitehorse returns in ambitious fashion with The Fate of the World Depends on this Kiss and a date at Massey Hall in 2013.

“The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss further establishes Whitehorse as a songwriting duo not afraid to push creative boundaries.” (The National Post)

“Essential Tracks: Achilles’ Desire – A dimly lit duet between Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland clomps strikingly to a foot-kicked tambourine, with a twangy guitar lick adding to the intense mood. Get between the smouldering desire of these two singer-songwriters and you will be crushed.” (The Globe & Mail)

“Simply put, McClelland and Doucet are kinda perfect together; their voices either blend effortlessly or bounce back and forth with complementary character, and the minimally appointed songs they come up with together roll over you pleasingly like they’ve been around forever.” (Toronto Star)

“Each listen begs for instant repeat gratification.” (Vancouver Weekly)

Though the suburban Montreal native is only just in his thirties, he’s already gone through more experiences, turmoil and hardships than a person twice his age. All of these experiences have shaped who he is today and are reflected in the eclectic and colourful musical landscapes he’s created for his The Death of Reason debut solo album for Shoreline Records/Fontana North.
