SAID THE WHALE – SINGLE REVIEW

Said The Whale – Step Into The Darkness (Hidden Pony Records) 
Said The Whale - Step Into The Darkness


Release Date: Out Now

You know those moments when you take a bite of something or a sip and the flavour makes you go ‘wow’ because of the overwhelming freshness and surprise compared to your preconceptions? Well, Vancouver trio Said The Whale have given my ears that response which is no unwelcome sensation. New single ‘Step Into The Darkness’ is an utterly sumptuous slice of lo-fi electro pop that is all about opening the curtains on a sunny Saturday morning to let the world in but with a lyrical soul that has been touched by a greater darkness. The soaring, uplifting melodies and gang vocals feel so right and are tailor made for the montage seen of a coming of age movie where the awkward, gangly kid realises that being himself is OK even if that means being awkward, gangly and slightly at odds with the rest of society. A little positivity and hope, then, just when the world needs it most.
