Reminiscent of Death Cab circa We Have The Facts and We're Voting Yes, Said The Whale's indie-pop tracks are bursting with West Coast sunshine and summer breeze. It's the nostalgic 90's American indie-emo sound that I love so much in this band (you know, back before emo meant My Chemical Romance).
The melodic punk sound that defined many of the 90s emo bands is recognisable in Said The Whale's power-pop guitar chords and introspective lyrics. The band are from Canada and are currently festival hopping in the UK with appearances at The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City.
Charlie Ashcroft caught up with the band after their lunchtime set at Komedia which was packed out!
