Said The Whale



Canadian rockers Said The Whale are storming into America in a big way. After winning the Juno Award for Best New Group in Canada last year, the group has just released its third album, Little Mountain, and it's their best yet. The five-piece from Vancouver takes a Manchester Orchestra-like sound, quiets it down a bit, sings about nature, and keeps it ridiculously catchy. So many of their tunes are perfect for crowd sing-alongs, and I am excited to see their skills on the stage when they come to Sasquatch this year. If you are a fan of Manchester Orchestra's soft side, or if you have always wondered what Fleet Foxes would sound like if they plugged in their guitars, Said The Whale is for you.
