Said The Whale have released a new video for their single “Lines.” The video mimics the Enchantment Under The Sea dance scene from the classic movie Back To The Future. Head over to saidthewhale.com to watch the video and hear two new songs for the band’s upcoming album Little Mountain (out March 6th, 2012)

The Vancouver-based band Said The Whale recently finished their first US tour, performed at SXSW, then won New Group of the Year at the Junos and are now on the road as direct for Tokyo Police Club’s Canadian tour. They’ll be touring the UK next month including performances at Brighton’s Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City.

For a short time they’re offering three tracks for free on their website from their most recent LP Islands Disappear – http://www.saidthewhale.com/stw_splash/page.html.

Said The Whale formed in 2007 as a collaboration between songwriters Ben Worcester and Tyler Bancroft. The pair’s debut EP, Taking Abalonia, featured sunny west coast indie pop with breezy harmonies, shimmering guitars, and lyrical tributes to their home city of Vancouver. In 2008, the album was re-released as Howe Sounds/Talking Abalonia, featuring seven additional tracks that stretched the band’s stylistic palate to include bubblegum folk (“The Light Is You”), thundering hard rock (“Last Tree Standing”) and gentle ukulele ballads (“The Real of It”).

After several personnel changes, the group settled upon a five-piece line-up that included bassist Nathan Shaw, drummer Spencer Schoening, and keyboardist Jaycelyn Brown. The quintet embarked upon a rigorous touring schedule, crossing Canada numerous times and landing high profile gigs at V-Fest 2008 in Calgary and the nationally televised Canada Day celebration on Parliament Hill.

The band released their follow-up album, Islands Disappear in 2009 on Hidden Pony Records (Hannah Georgas, Imaginary Cities) in Canada. Produced by Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, The New Pornographers, Mother Mother) and Tom Dobrzanski, the latest album draws on the experience of driving across Canada, from the van breaking down in Manitoba (“Dear Elkhorn”) to camping in Alberta (“Emerald Lake, AB”). The album’s first single, “Camilo (The Magician),” with its gritty powerchords and sunny powerpop chorus, was dubbed the “song of the summer” by Grant Lawrence of CBC Radio 3 and peaked at #20 on Alternative Spins Chart as well as being one of the most-played Canadian song at Modern Rock Radio in Canada for 2010. With stylistic forays that include backwoods folk (“False Creek Change”) and danceable ukulele/glockenspiel rave-ups (“Goodnight Moon”), it’s the sound of a band coming into its own, delivering on the promise of its early recordings.

No stranger to life on the road, Said The Whale have played several full Canadian tours, including supporting Plants and Animals and Mother Mother as well as gigs with the likes of City and Colour, Sloan, Joel Plaskett and Devo. They’re currently touring with Tokyo Police Club and Dinosaur Bones in Canada.
