Said The Whale
Said The Whale – Royal Teeth
Said The Whale formed in 2007 as a collaboration between songwriters Ben Worcester and Tyler Bancroft. The pair’s debut EP, Taking Abalonia, featured sunny west coast indie pop, with breezy harmonies, shimmering guitars, and lyrical tributes to their home city of Vancouver. In 2008, the album was rereleased as Howe Sounds/Talking Abalonia, featuring seven additional tracks that stretched the band’s stylistic palate to include bubblegum folk (“The Light Is You”), thundering hard rock (“Last Tree Standing”) and gentle ukulele ballads (“The Real of It”). After several personnel changes, the group settled upon a five-piece lineup that includes bassist Nathan Shaw, drummer Spencer Schoening, and keyboardist Jaycelyn Brown. The quintet embarked upon a rigorous touring schedule, crossing Canada numerous times and landing high profile gigs at V-Fest 2008 in Calgary and the nationally televised Canada Day celebration on Parliament Hill.
Royal Teeth makes music for adventures.
With their newly released debut studio album, “Act Naturally”, the band is honing their hooks and and perfecting their melodies. Musicians/Singers Gary Larsen and Nora Patterson provide heartfelt lyrics as the band travels through adventurous soundscapes filled by Andrew Poe, sharply delivered low end by Josh Wells, and huge backbeats provided by Josh Hefner. The deliciously pop-inspired hooks augmented by Stevie Billeaud’s guitar serve up eclectic and infectious dance hooks that will make you want to move. Songs like the raucous “Wild” with its vibrantly chanted chorus will undoubtedly keep playing in your head long after the song is over. Equally as unforgettable is the reinvention of the hauntingly lovely “Heartbeats” by The Knife. Make sure and pick up a copy of “Act Naturally” now.
