New Blog Entry from Noah and the Whale

Hello folks



Sorry for the great length of silence that has passed on this blog. You may however be pleased to know that the time has been spent most constructively as you will find out below, although I am afraid that this trend will not be stopping anytime soon. In fact this will be my last post until the end of the year or at least until recording of the album has been completed.



There have been two wonderful shows recently that rank among my favourites of all time. The… Continue

New Blog from Noah and the Whale: Scandinavia and Germany

Hello



Hope you're all well.



We just pulled in from a short tour of Holland, which was ace. We all enjoyed watching 'Band Of Horses' at the Motel Mozaique festival.



Next week we're off to Scandinavia and Germany for a few weeks and then we're back into writing and recording mode. The dates are up on our myspace along with a couple of new festival dates for the summer, including a show supporting Charlotte Gainsbourg in Lyon. Hopefully we'll see you… Continue

New Noah and the Whale Blog Entry

I watch very little television but just recently my attention was drawn to a BBC2 documentary called ‘A Band For Britain’. The programme follows Sue Perkins as she attempts to breathe new life into the Dinnington Colliery Brass Band. It was quite simply one of the funniest, most moving and most affecting things I have ever seen.



I have two reasons to be particularly vulnerable to a programme like this. Firstly because on my mother’s side of my family, my great grandfather was a coal… Continue

Blog Entry from Noah and the Whale: European Tour

Hello



We have some new European tour dates posted on our myspace. Take a look see if it's in a town near you.



Things are going extremely well in the studio, we've got seven tracks written and nearly demoed now and we're starting to wind up for the Roundhouse show in March. However despite this great mass of activities our bass player Urby Whale seems to have found his way back onto the silver screen.



Here are some recent photos of Urby;…

Blog from Noah and the Whale - FILM 2010

Exciting news friends.



A film named ‘The Scouting Book For Boys’ is released on March 19th. This is exciting for many reasons. Not only because it is an absolute corker of a film and stars, among many other great performances, the unstoppable Thomas Turgoose. It also features six Noah and the Whale songs on the soundtrack. The tracks are mostly from the first record and one b-side. Here is a trailer;







More information can be found on the film… Continue

9/10 Review of 'The First Days of Spring' on Stereo Subversion

"Second albums can be somewhat crucial, especially to a band that has already garnered some attention. Critics can speak of the “sophomore slump,” where a band with a decent debut leaves fans disappointed, be it because of too much evolution too quickly, or just a mailed in, re-hash of the original formula. Of course, sometimes bands get it right, and Noah and the Whale leaves little room for argument that they have done just that on The First Days of Spring."

Blog from Noah and the Whale - The First Days

Hello



Last week was a week of meetings, discussing the plans for the record with our label, our publisher and the band. The fact that this is our third album means everyone already has a pretty good understanding of how we work and respects it. Therefore the meetings were pretty straight forward and very positive.



On Monday we moved into a converted synagogue to begin demoing. Here it is;…

Blog from Noah and the Whale - Happy New Year

Hello



First off, sorry for such a lengthy silence on this website. Amongst many new years resolutions, to be a more a devoted blogger ranks moderately high.



I haven’t much to report, I spent my Christmas making the first serious steps on the writing of the next record. I have a pretty clear idea now of what I want it to be and have about four songs that I’m very pleased with. We’re spending the next couple of months demoing in a converted synagogue.



I’ve already…
