Noah and the Whale - The First Days of Spring

I discovered this through a a video clip from some post in my RSS Reader. I loved the sound right away. So I looked them up on Spotify and lo-and-behold, they have 2 albums there.

My first reaction was: “This sounds a lot like Sigur Rós”. But I guess that was only the opening minute of the CD. The rest is not so similar. But sounding very good never the less. A tiny bit of pop, sometimes folk, and a voice over all that to connect it. Just wonderful at times…. trumpets, violins…. Autumn in NY is the kind of images I get in my head listening to this.

I think I listened 2 or 3 times to the album and probably will a few times more in the coming weeks. Go and listen for yourself.
