NPR : “Freelance Whales: Busking to the Big Time”

NME : “It’s awash with gentle, naive bliss, and if you’re the type that likes to observe hooks blossoming with the pace of an actual flower opening, then you might have just found a new favourite band.””

Stereogum : “Band To Watch” – “There’s palpable warmth and tactful touch that crackles throughout their strongest tunes’s group chants, harmonies, that should prove irresistible…”

Brooklyn Vegan : “The band’s varied indie-pop has a humble, homespun quality to it. They lean on banjos and xylophones for tender rural sounds to a good effect”

Paste Magazine : Freelance Whales use banjo, harmonium, cello, glockenspiel, synthesizers and guitars to create something that sounds a lot like pure joy

They don’t really fancy buffalo nickels or Victorian furniture, but over the past two years, they’ve been collecting instruments, ghost stories, and dream-logs. Somehow, from this strange compost heap of little sounds and quiet thoughts, songs started to rise up like steam from the ground.
