((White Whale)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

White Whale is a band from Lawrence, Kansas that recently released their debut for the mighty Merge Records. But this band didn't exactly come out of nowhere. Members of White Whale include Matt Suggs (solo artist, formerly of Butterglory) and one of the Pope brothers from The Get Up Kids.

Their sound has been compared to Big Star meets Roxy Music meets David Bowie (they themselves claim Sabbath, but I don't here that at all). And I guess sometimes they sound like Arcade Fire when they do that whole in unison "hey-oh-hey-oh-oh-hey" thing. But really, this is just pretty clear cut rock 'n' roll with a few snazzy piano parts filtered in.
