Black Whales (black * whAYles), n. : Flowers on drugs, warm-hearted spaghetti-westerns, reverb-soaked, tubey riffs in the hay amidst an organized chaos of booming and danceable rhythms, honey-sticky melodics, jangly guitar hooks, tambourines, shaker magic.
Seattle, WA's Black Whales will get you good. They will hit all of your sweet spots, they will surprise you with its seemingly effortless, effortlessly seamless songwriting. There's so much darkness in their pop, and there's so much brightness in their shade. Black Whales are far from being one-dimensional; they've done what, if one is honest with oneself, only happens rarely: they've found perfect matches and musical foils with each other. They've found an incredibly textural, experimentally off-center, perfectly heart-hitting way of bringing their amazing songs to fruition.
The band’s debut LP “Shangri-La Indeed “was made with the help of producer John Goodmanson and self-released on June 26th. "Lately" is the lead single off of that album and I can promise you this, it's going make the world's heart skip a beat. I'll also promise three more things: Black Whales are a force recorded. Black Whales are a force live. Black Whales is the kind of band that will reward you for caring about music...and they're just getting started.
