Go See Said The Whale Saturday Night

Posted By on Fri, Mar 9, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Said The Whale are playing Plush on Saturday night and if you enjoy super-charming indie rock, they're absolutely worth seeing live. They were the Juno award winner for New Group of the Year in 2011! They're known for their energetic live shows! If you like the Shins, but maybe wish they'd be a bit happier at times, Said The Whale should be right up your alley.

Gene Armstrong reviewed the band's new album for this week's issue:

The sometimes off-kilter and wholly adorable indie-rock songs of this Vancouver, British Columbia-based band are nothing short of effervescent. On its third full-length album, the tunes are like scrubbing bubbles for brains numbed by modern irony, depression and negativity.

If you're like to hear for yourself, the entire album is available to stream on Soundcloud, which we have helpfully embedded above.
