Said The Whale - New Brighton EP
I have been a big fan of Said The Whale and their familiar Canadian sound over the past year. Back in July I had an interview with Tyler Bancroft and asked him specifically if there was any new material in the works. His reply...
"As I write this, we are in the studio and Ben is singing into a grand piano making weird sounds that will be on our new record. We'll be in the studio all summer and will hopefully have the new album ready for release early 2012. If things go smoothly we'll have a short EP ready for the fall".
Well it turns out that Said The Whale are true to their word and they will be releasing a new EP 'New Brighton' on November 8th via Hidden Pony. The first single 'Lines' will be released on October 18th. Also the new album is set to be released in the new year (rumoured to be March). 'New Brighton' EP will include four songs, "New Brighton", "Sandy Bay Fishing Song", "Lines", and "Little Bird". For more information on the EP be sure to check out the bands blog and this is what they said about the EP's release...
"The songs were recorded at Blue Wave and Vertical Studios in Vancouver, BC, under the production guidance of our long-time friend Tom Dobrzanski. They were recorded alongside 15 other songs that will make up our full-length album, (due out early next year)."
