Friday music blogging: Noah & the Whale

Friday music blogging: Noah & the Whale

Noah & the Whale is a UK indie-folk band. If you guessed what their name is about without googling, you may be a terminal hipster (it's a tribute to the film The Squid & the Whale by director Noah Baumbach ). The band is pretty well known in the UK new folk scene; at one point or another both Emmy the Great and Laura Marling have performed with them. Last Night on Earth , their third LP, came out earlier this year. It's got a few more electronic textures and is a little poppier, but the songs retain their sturdy classicism and romanticism. Charlie Fink's voice and lyrics are old-fashioned in an appealing sort of way. You can imagine them doing these songs in a lounge. This song, the poppiest track and lead single, is "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N."
