Freelance Whales – Locked Out

From: First Song For Your Mixtape

So I recently listened to this fabulous band, a five piece of independent ocean dwelling mammals from Queens NY, and couldn’t get enough of their track ‘Broken Horse’ which has Elliot Smith levels of enchantment to it. Cool story you’re thinking, but wait it gets even better. A follow up album to their gorgeous 2009 release ‘Weathervanes’ is set for release on October 9th and to whet your appetite you can trade your email address for single ‘Locked Out’. That my friends, is a very fair swap indeed because what you get is a mellow 5 minutes of swirling textures and uplifting vocals that sets the bar high for whatever is to follow on ‘Diluvia’ in a few months time. You can download ‘Locked Out’ for free via their official website here…
