What do you think about artists that use the resources they’ve got surrounding them to create their own style of music? If you love already what I am telling you, wait until you hear them. Their band is named, Freelance Whales, and they are exposing their unique style to the world.
With different beats and sounds, the five integrants who form the band Freelance Whales, offer their listeners a great mixture of sounds, Their viewers will have a smile on their faces since the moment they start hearing this multi-instrumentalists artists that offer a diverse and new way of mixing and integrating instruments together. The members of the band define themselves as “collectors”. This word describes the group’s personality since they collect their instruments and focus to produce their music with the tools they possess.
They decided to perform altogether for the first time in an original place that suited the bands style. It occurred in January 2009, in Staten Island. In Farm Colony, which was an abandoned farm. Here the band felt they could find the connection and inspiration they needed surrounded with an old farm that contained many different small rooms.
After the performance at Farm Colony, the group didn’t stayed with the arms closed, they decided to take the lead to perform in other places such as city streets, subway platforms and other stages.
This group offers a distinct kind of music. Their style is so unique that it cannot be compared to any other bands. They intertwine rhythmic patters, and embed the sounds with a light sound of vocals. The songs represent something mystical and spooky at the same time. All of the members in the band sing and play instruments which is something that already differs itself from other bands. Here you can feel a great connection among the members and their sounds fit in the adequate beats.
The record they work on wants to tell a love story, “where the young male falls in love with a spectral young femme who haunts his childhood home. He chases her in his dreams but finds her to be mostly elusive. He imagines her alive, and wonders if someday he’ll take on her responsibilities of ghosting, or If maybe he’ll join her, elsewhere.” (Freelance Whales)
And so, after playing in New York City, almost exclusively, for about a year, they embarked on their first tour of the United States, and Canada. They differ from different artists, because they do not seek being famous and becoming really commercial.
The only thing left out to say for the band is to wish them luck, and appreciate the different kind of music they bring to us!
