Though the five-piece calls Minneapolis their stomping grounds, they have found home to be wherever their craft takes them- from college campuses and bars across the Midwest to sharing the stage with artists like Mat Kearney, Betty Who, Peter Bjorn and John, Step Rockets, Flor, and Jesse McCartney. Whosah has won the University of Minnesota's Spring Jam Battle of the Bands, been featured on popular shows like NBC's "A to Z" and MTV's "Snookie and JWoww" and Target's back-to-school campaign.
With a dance-pop twist on Walk the Moon and The 1975, Whosah’s new release is centered around an optimistic and spunky attitude, savoring the conflict between finding purpose in the daily routine and longing for a life beyond the known. Produced with Nashville's Chase Coy (formerly of Universal Records), their sophomore EP, "Work" was released in March of 2016. It charted in the Top 200 of CMJ radio, garnered over 200,000 spotify streams and resulted in regional mainstream radio play along with increased opportunities for the band as both the headlining act at colleges performance halls from MI to PA and support for Bleachers, MUNA, and Mutemath at Go 96.3's GoFest 2017.
In between these live shows over the past year, the band has been writing its first full length record, getting back to their regional roots at Humans Win! Recording Studio in Minneapolis, MN. The single is set to be released later this summer, with a remix EP of "Work" to compliment anticipation for Fall travel dates and the to-be-titled LP. The record will continue to hone the band's emphasis on synth-pop feel with live keys, guitar, and drums by a rock band not afraid to let loose alongside every music enthusiast they meet.
" 'Work' finds its home in a balance between the toils of labor and the field of dreams. Sometimes the drive to find success leads us to miss how good life is right now, and other times our fear of the unknown leads us to miss out on how good life could be.
Every note, every rhythm, every word in this record was brought with that balance in mind. The project digs into the muddied, murky parts of everyday life and asks, what am I missing here? What am I missing that I should be thankful for? What am I missing that I should be longing for?
“We hope that our journey through those questions inspires our listeners to ask those same of themselves. Our dream is that they'll find the same joy we've found in savoring that process of discovery ourselves. " -Spencer- Frontman, Keys, Songwriter
