For those Freelance Whales fans out there: Do you remember “Ghosting” and “Location”? Do you remember turning it up in the winter while drinking hot cocoa? I do. Ever since Weathervanes was released in 2009, Freelance Whales has remained one of my favorite bands. With their perfect imperfections at the beginnings of their songs, along with the sweet little whispers and crackles, these guys have made it to the top. Now they’ve just released a new single called “Locked Out, off their forthcoming sophomore album Diluvia. The band’s signature sound is still there, though this track definitely brings something fresh and interesting to the table. “Locked Out” features tons of string instruments and intricate moments of pure magic. I’m insanely curious to see what their album will be like. Diluvia drops October 9 via Mom + Pop/Frenchkiss Records.
