And to answer your question, yes we will still love you.

“West Coast Love” is the first video of that the group as released this year, the song that features Susana Williams is showing a darker side of Whitbeck. The grunge tone, mixed with the echoes of the vocals will ring in your ears long after the song has ended.

As you listen on to the song you’ll become more and more engaged, it showcases all the sides that you’ve seen thus far from Whitbeck. It’s slow, dramatic, powerful and brings the heat, close your eyes and enjoy the “Drama In Hastings Street”.

The album is coming to an end with “What In The World” and “In Other Words”, which brings out two different sides of them, they leave you with more questions than answers. Who is Whitbeck? Where did they come from? And how can I hear more of their music? Even though they gave you 45 min of their time, you still want more.
