Said the Whale
Said the Whale is a Vancouver-based rock band started by Ben Worcester and Tyler Bancroft. They currently have two albums, Howe Sounds/Taking Abalonia, which was released in June of 2008, and Islands Disappear, released in October of 2009.
The music itself has an original sound that just forces you to sing along. and once you start singing along, you realize the meaning behind music. Their lyrics are thought-provoking and inspirational. It's music that isn't centered around sex, drugs, and alcohol, like most popular music on the radio today.
You can check them out here with album updates, tour information, and more. Here is my personal favorite song, Love is Art/Sleep Through Fire. Don't stop short with only enjoying the instrumental aspects of the song, but really listen to the lyrics. Who couldn't love a band with this much musical talent and creativity?
