The five musicians who form Freelance Whales found one another in 2008 amid a strange amalgam of unfamiliar instruments and precariously composed pop songs. Using whatever musical gadgets they happened upon - harmonium, banjo, glockenspiel, synthesizers, guitars, bass, cello, drums, and waterphone - they worked at crafting songs with interlocking rhythmic patterns, lush textural layering, and an engaged group-vocal energy. Freelance Whales can be spotted in the streets and humble venues of NYC. Their first full-length recording 'weathervanes' is available on CDBaby. Freelance Whales toured all over US and Canada with Fanfarlo during November and December 2009. In January, they performed at NYC's Mercury Lounge.
