Said the Whale
For a Vancouver-based band, Said the Whale creates convincingly sunny West Coast indie rock. Formed in 2007 by songwriters Ben Worcester and Tyler Bancroft, the five-piece has built a repertoire of hooky riffs, breezy vocal harmonies, and choruses sung with the reckless rock ‘n’ roll abandon. Touring in support of their new purposefully misspelled album, hawaiii, expect repetitive yet somehow compelling refrains, solid guitar work, and catchy near-sea shanties.
