Loved these guys the first time I heard them. Formed in 2006 and hailing from London. Their name is pretty clever in how it came to be. The name ‘Noah and the Whale’ is a combination of the title of one of the band’s favorite films, The Squid and the Whale, and the director of the film’s name, Noah Baumbach. They are also avid fans of the film director Wes Anderson; their emails, and many of their MySpace blog posts, are signed “Sic Transit Gloria”, a phrase frequently used in Anderson’s film Rushmore. The First Days of Spring is a journey of survival, dealing with an epic break-up. They are definitely worth the download.
