UK alternative-shoegazers Whitelands pride themselves as new comers to the DIY scene. Created by lead singer and guitarist Etienne Quartey-Papafio in 2017, he was then later joined by drummer Jagun Meseorisa and bassist Edward Coma. With a fresh take on rock’n’roll and an array of eclectic influences, Whitelands are blessed with the ability to write heartfelt songs combined with the gritty and chunky distortion-heavy rhythms of a true post-punk or shoegaze trio.
Whitelands have now joined the MoonSwing Netlabel family, offering their charming, yet crashing self-titled sophomore release, 'Whitelands' for free download!

The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable.
