Freelance Whales - Enzymes

Ok, so before I get into why FW is so amazing, let me preface this write up with my high affinity I hold for them. A good friend of mine attended Trinity College with Chuck Criss, one of the members of the band, a super cool dude. A direct result of this? We have been championing the Whales long before signing with French Kiss (maybe you have heard of the band Passion Pit). I was blessed with the opportunity to see them both SIGNED and UNSIGNED at the SAME venue in Allston. They absolutely crushed it equally, both times. Something you can rarely say about a band.
The Whales are a unique party on stage, they all have the ability to swap intruments and responsibilites mid set, they also hold a seriously high energy for an indie pop outfit, (hipsters are not known to dance, they definately groove on the whales, I'm a witness) They apply just the right amount of untz, and really know how to sing. To me it could be considered a perfect package. After the release of their LP, Weathervanes these cats have been getting some serious attention, which has not seemed to run straight to their heads. Today, I present to you the newest installment of the Whales success, a track released a day or so ago called "Enzymes" a pretty heavy tune in my opinion, smooth melodic indie-rock rifts coupled with their signature "Whales styles jam" on the keys. Bravo guys.
