Where there's smoke, there's fire.

Whitehorse's story has been told as two acclaimed musicians joining forces under one new name -- no drummer, no keyboard player, violinist or even bass player on call, and no producer. Just Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland The first album and EP demonstrate the success of this simple equation, one plus one, with an abundance of guitar slinging, songwriting expertise and white-hot desire.

Of course, the live show has been anything but simple. Melissa and Luke present a full band sound using live loops, bits and pieces percussion, and swapping guitars left right and centre on stage. By the time Whitehorse took to the stage at Toronto's esteemed Massey Hall for their sold-out debut in 2013, the edge of the ledge effect of their earliest shows had transformed into a nimble ballet of moving instruments, layers of percussion, voice and keys, layered upon each other.

Now, with the sophomore LP "Leave No Bridge Unburned," Whitehorse messes with the math. The duo hired ex-pat producer Gus Van Go to make the record. The three met at the 2013 Polaris Music Prize Gala, where Whitehorse performed as a Short List nominee for "The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss." With this move, Whitehorse's studio team instantly doubled -- Gus and his frequent collaborator Werner F transformed the duo's song-making dynamic into a group conversation. Fans also know that the band's family life has grown with the arrival of a baby. "Leave No Bridge Unburned" signals a new era for Whitehorse, a time of expanded musical influence, community, and kin.

"Leave No Bridge Unburned" boasts more of everything that makes Whitehorse exciting and innovative -- it's Whitehorse amplified, increased, intensified. If "The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss" was Whitehorse's urgent, romantic statement on uncertainty and impending disaster, "Leave No Bridge Unburned" is a reckoning, a confrontation. The smoulders on "Fate" have become a full-blown blaze, a wall of heat. "Leave No Bridge Unburned" is all about surging ahead; there's nothing to lose and no way to return.
