Black Whales

...while our inbox gets more and more submissions every single day, we couldn't be happier to sort through everything when it leads us to something as rewarding as Seattle outfit Black Whales. With their debut EP Origins dropping today via the Mt Fuji imprint, Black Whales may be a band to watch in the coming months. With their recent success at the high-profile Bumbershoot festival, Black Whales are conjuring a buzz that is only further bolstered by the strength of Origins. Propelled by hooktastic melodies, the spiky jangle of their guitar work is perfectly balanced by a moody-yet-danceable rhythm section. At moments, Alex Robert delivers a potent combination of words and melodies that channels hints of The Shins' James Mercer. With repeated spins imminent, we can easily see this becoming a large part of our soundtrack of Autumn 2009...

I think the Black Whales have a lot of talent and the potential to be something really big. "Origins" is a fantastic EP!! I am so impressed with the way they make changes in their songs that flow so easily. They are a great bunch of guys. I certainly wish them great success and am sure they will get it.
