Whales

Whales writes moody songs that are pretty; pretty songs that are loud; and loud songs that move. Instead of floating off into the ether Whales opts to reassemble it on strength of tectonic songcraft and absolution of noise and melody. Some passages linger lovingly while others mushroom into an explosive climax, and the rest just rock balls. No conceit. No bullshit. Serve the song. — RSMurphy
