A couple of years ago an EP called How The Ship Goes Down by a band called The Whalers reached our in-box.
On that EP was a track called That Rabbit. It was a stonewall instant classic.
Then later in the year came an excellent three track EP called Paddle Easy.
Then things seemed to go all quiet bar the odd track surfacing on Bandcamp.
The Austin, Texas natives will be releasing their debut album, Submarine Sun on April 8th. Picking up where 2011’s EPs left off, the new album finds them expertly mixing indie and surf rock similar to contemporaries like The Growlers and Surfer Blood.
They have released the first track from the album, we’re happy to report it is an expectation-meeting fuzzed out stomper called Battleships.
Have a listen, and join MM in rejoicing at their return.
And that classic…on a name-your-price deal from Bandcamp.
