The Devil Whale
The Devil Whale is a five piece semi-pro rock band from Salt Lake City that specializes in long drives and short songs.
In 2011, the band self-released their second full-length album (“Teeth”) while also playing over 100 shows in 26 U.S. states, including tours w/ The Head & The Heart and Thao & the Get Down Stay Down. Speaking of “Teeth”, KEXP described the album as “...an impressive set of well-crafted folk-pop steeped in ‘60s psych-pop, ‘70s folk-rock... blending crunchy guitars, prominent piano and other keyboards, warm harmonies and some gorgeous melodies.”
Daytrotter noticed a similar vibe, writing “Lead singer Brinton Jones has a singing style that brings to mind Jeff Tweedy doing Fleetwood Mac songs, or at least coming close to that mood and that place.”
2012 will find the road-eager bunch on the road less, and more regularly confined to basements and studios as they begin the process of making a new record.
