Tuesday Tunes v.2

Hey friends :]

For Tuesday Tunes this week, I would like to introduce you to one of my favorite bands, Freelance Whales. I got to see them last year in Chapel Hill and they were absolutely stunning! They were some of the nicest people in the world and love to get to know their fans. I think they can change the music scene. One of my favorite things I respect about them is that they all play five instruments each, minimum. I may be exaggerating but regardless they all switch instruments during shows and definitely show their individual talent.

"To call them multi-instrumentalists might be a little overdone. The kids in Freelance Whales are really just collectors, at heart. They don’t really fancy buffalo nickels or Victorian furniture, but over the past two years, they’ve been collecting instruments, ghost stories, and dream-logs. Somehow, from this strange compost heap of little sounds and quiet thoughts, songs started to rise up like steam from the ground."

Enjoy this lovely band dubbed Freelance Whales.
They're so cool, even Starbucks had to use them for a commercial here.

**last two photos were taken at the show I went to two Octobers ago.


  1. Awesome feature! While I was studying design I was so focused on nerdy things like typography and colour websites that I put my music interests on hold. And a year later I never really got back into the swing of things. This is going to be such a fantastic way to discover new bands!

    Love it!
