While the Federal Government urges Australians to get behind what is essentially an extension of the Intervention into the Northern Territory for the next ten years under a new title 'Stronger Futures', a Funk Hip-hop crew ironically called Whitehouse are urging their listeners to oppose what they view as more of the same government oppression on Australia's first peoples. Whitehouse have been agitating for social change from the stage and from the studio since they originally crewed up in 2006 and in July 2012 they are taking their messages backed with funky bass lines and solid drum and guitar grooves to the wider community on their first East Coast Tour, promoting their debut album, aptly titled, 'A Funky Intervention'. Joining the ride is conscious Hip-hop crew Impossible Odds from Brisbane and hotly rotated Yung Warriors from Melbourne. On the eve of their upcoming East Coast tour, Whitehouse will be unleashing their new single "The 26th" to Radio; their debut album "A Funky Intervention" has been enjoying support from Community Radio including 4ZZZ 102.1FM (Brisbane), FBi 94.5FM (Sydney), PBS 106.7FM and RRR 102.7FM (Melbourne), Radio Adelaide 101.5FM (Adelaide) and RTR 92.1FM (Perth). “I love this music we create, especially when we get together to perform it live. I am inspired by the positive reaction we have so far to our album and encouraged that people are digging our message funk vibe. I realise a lot of people don't pay attention to lyrics but as the lyricist in this band I hope that when people come to our show and enjoy an awesome night of infectious grooves that they take a CD home and get to understand what we stand for and that is we want every Australian, black and white and every colour in between to enjoy the same basic human rights. I also cannot wait to share the stage with Impossible Odds and Yung Warriors- these guys are the future of conscious Ozzie Hip-hop and I feel honoured that they wanna support this funky fresh tour.” Sonic Nomad “Funky Edutainment” Celline Narinli, Drum Media "Lots of slap bass lines, solid grooves and layered percussion. However the political content of the band's lyrics makes them more than just a group to bounce to…overall it's a solid effort with a fresh mix of old and new, and leaves no question that Whitehouse would rock a festival crowd with a live set." Josh Donellan, Rave Magazine For music lovers sick of sugar coated lyrics over ripped off nursery rhyme tunes and who want some home grown music with a bit of substance then look out because the Whitehouse just got a new administration enacting their new bill called “A Funky Intervention” available now in leading record stores and iTunes.
