Although named for the hungry atmosphere of their hometown ("Everybody in New York is a freelancer of something," frontman Judah Dadone once allegedly said), Freelance Whales no longer have to hustle to do what they love. The successful indie outfit will be returning to NYC, among other cities, as part of their recently announced tour promoting their second album, Diluvia.
Known for alt instrumentals (glockenspiel, harmonium, banjo) and obscure mumblecore references, Freelance Whales could justifiably be called "hipster," if they didn't lack the term's connotations of shallow posing. Spin magazine has endorsed the group as one of the "Must Hear Bands at SXSW," while NPR called them "a band to watch" in advance of their festival debut.
Whether you agree with the popular acclaim, or are looking to make up your own mind, we've got dates and ticket links to Freelance Whales' upcoming fall and winter concerts below.
