Freelance Whales

Grabbing sounds evocative of the Appalachian Mountains as well as the Promise Ring, Freelance Whales represent a beautiful marriage of the old and new. Relying heavily on such instruments as banjo and glockenspiels in addition to synthesizers and crunchy guitars, this band manages to avoid sounding like a hokey indie-flavored jug band and rather a group of guys with serious songwriting chops. This is due in no small part to their catchy layered vocal melodies.
