Freelance Whales

Freelance Whales are a five piece folk pop act from Queens, NYC, they sound very similar to Iron and Wine circa 2003 before Iron and Wine started to sound like Yeasayer, not in a bad way just an accidental way. If you get a chance and are lucky enough to be at SXSW this March they have at least 5 shows over there, no venues or times have been announced yet but keep checking their myspace. Their debut album WEATHERVANES is out on 16th March (in time to buy it at one of their SXSW gigs. Or you can order it from HERE.
