“The carefree vibe to each writing session was helping me feel passionate about music again. It was kind of like being transported back to those early days of jamming in your parents’ garage, with no expectations. The only rule was to keep it fun.” Josh Warburton
TORONTO, ON - JULY 4, 2017 - Change is good, and for Josh Warburton (July Talk) and Toronto producer Thomas D'Arcy (Small Sins/BROS./Tommy Hawkins) change was exactly what these two needed to fully discover their new side project White Hot Guilt. Today, the duo announces the release of the first new track, Little Things, and the July 21st release date for their self-titled debut EP (TDM Inc.). All proceeds from sales will be donated to 'SKETCH' - a Toronto-based community-arts-development initiative that creates equitable opportunities for young people homeless and on the margins from across Canada to experience the transformative power of the arts.

The new EP showcases a sort of future retrospect in dance music. Indie meets electro. Now meets then. Perhaps Warburton’s smooth falsetto channels the Bee Gees. The percussive organics alongside analog synths might make one think of LCD Soundsystem, while the horn sections hearken to something more like Stevie Wonder. This is to say: White Hot Guilt is sort of like a lot of things, but not really like anything else at all.
What's The Story About White Hot Guilt?
White Hot Guilt is the side project of Josh Warburton (July Talk) and Toronto producer Thomas D’Arcy (BROS./Small Sins/Tommy Hawkins). The two met years ago - Warburton looking for musical therapy post-rehab and a place to park his pop songs, while D’Arcy looked to hone his production chops at his new studio (Taurus Recording). Yin had met yang. The result: a future retrospect in music. Now meets then. Daft Punk meets the Bee Gees. LCD Soundsystem meets Stevie Wonder. This is to say: White Hot Guilt is sort of like a lot of things, but not really like anything else at all. The only common thread: fun. On July 21st, the first five White Hot Guilt songs will be released. All proceeds will be donated to SKETCH. To read more about White Hot Guilt, click here.
