Said the Whale 

Hawaii (Hidden Pony)


On the new album Hawaii, Said the Whale is getting in touch with its inner Beach Boys. Song after song shimmers with that post-summer glow and 1960s spirit with a little synth edge. Working again with long-time producer Tom Dobrzanski (Hey Ocean!, We Are The City) it's not all sunshine and rainbows–"I Love You" has an almost '90s alt-rock bridge and between the sad-sack songs "Willow" and "The Weight of the Season" this could just about soundtrack your breakup if you're sad but, you know, not too sad to hang out on the beach or go for a joyride or two.
