Whosah is a band of authenticity and joy. In a world increasingly driven by fear-based fake news and click-bait-driven social media influencers, Whosah's honesty and positivity are a refreshing, cool cup of water to anyone that hears one of their songs, dances with them at a show, or just passes them on the street.
Though Minneapolis is their stomping grounds, the group has found home to be wherever their journey takes them- from college campuses and bars across the Midwest to sharing the stage with artists like Mat Kearney, Betty Who, Hippo Campus, Peter Bjorn and John, Flor, and Jesse McCartney. Whosah's tunes have also been featured on-screen, shows like Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, ABC's A to Z, and MTV's "Snookie and JWoww."
With an indie twist on Walk the Moon or LANY, Whosah’s last EP, "Work" was released in March of 2016. It charted in the Top 200 of CMJ radio, garnered over 400,000 spotify streams, resulted in regional mainstream radio play, and increased opportunities for the band as both the headlining act at college performance halls across the country and support for Bleachers, MUNA, and Mutemath at Go 96.3's GoFest.
As their tour radius expanded, singles and remix EPs continued to blur their musical lines between dance and indie-rock; Their first 2019 single, “Slomo” celebrates both. Earmilk calls it, “Vocally refreshing on the ears, matched with high-hitting expansive melodies to back the band’s mantra of positivity and realness.”
Whosah's forthcoming debut full-length record expands the depth or their art, digging deeper, darker, and more personal than anything they've done before -- dialing in their signature sound and telling their story of life, love, and mystery and most of all, being true to yourself.

"Slomo is about living life in the now -- how being present in your current moment is the only moment we actually have. Slomo looks at how thinking, talking, and acting quickly keep us from being who we really want to be. Slomo asks the question: what do we actually gain from flying through life? What would our lives, dreams, and relationships be like if we took a breath and slowed down.
Can we talk in slow motion, can we fight in slow motion, can you love me slow? "
-Spencer- Frontman, Keys, Songwriter
