Freelance Whales can only be described as a multi-instrumental, electic, fun-loving indie-pop band. Both their music and their demeanor is catchy and makes you feel right at home. I first discovered them a while back on one of my favorite music blogs, I Guess I’m Floating. Since then, I haven’t been able to stop listening to their songs.
Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, the band gained notoriety while playing in the New York subway. They self-released their EP Weathervanes in early 2009, and re-released it again under their label Mom + Pop in April 2010. Most of the songs off the EP were a compilation of chilhood memories and dream journaling composed by the frontman Judah Dadone.
An interesting fact about the band is that Chuck Criss (who plays banjo and a plethora of other things) is the brother of Glee‘s Darren Criss. Obviously talent runs in the family. Below is the video for my favorite song on their album, entitled “Hannah.”
