Said the Whale: This City’s a Mess
Already having achieved some major feats including a YouTube featured video with nearly 300,000 views, Said The Whale is one of those bands that only continues to build off its previous successes.
One-part Brian Wilson, one-part Nick Cave, a dash of the Shins and sprinkled with the Decemberists, Said The Whale is exploring new aspects of their musical potential while drawing inspiration from the world that surrounds them in Western Canada. The unique blend of guitars riffs and witty lyrics captures the essence of what it means to be young, free, and occasionally heartbroken in your early twenties.
Howe Sounds/Taking Albonia builds on the success Said The Whale has already attained in Vancouver. It’s apparent that Said The Whale is a product of the thriving independent music scene in Western Canada and the Northwest USA, yet Howe Sounds proves that they are still able to stand out as a compelling up-and-coming band.
The collective brainchild of Ben Worcester and Tyler Bancroft, now recently turned five-piece band, Said the Whale has accumulated a solid fan base from a litany of previous bands (My Buddy Dave, The Millionaires, WordsOverMusic), and Said The Whale are quickly winning over new fans with every show.
