Whitney is a Chicago-based indie outfit signed to the label Secretly Canadian. The group was first formed in 2015, when the remaining members of Smith Westerns decided to create something new. For Halloween, the musicians surprised an audience at Bloomington, Indiana’s The Blockhouse Bar by covering not just one Stokes song, but a performing a short set of them. The footage was posted on the band’s Instagram page, garnering comments like “When the cover band sounds tighter than the real one, you know it’s gotta be something good.”

Their version of “Last Nite” was crisp and true to the original, whereas their cover of “Meet Me in the Bathroom” was sultry and compelling. Check it out below:
