Whaleboat w/ Fiasco 

When: Fri., May 23 2014

indie, 8 p.m.

Savannah, Ga. indie rockers Whaleboat are blowing their local music scene out of the water with their latest EP Convoys. The pretty new-to-the-game crew formed in 2011 with lead vocalist and pianist Brent Collins, bassist Jeremiah Stuard, and drummer Donald Moats. The three-piece group added Blake Yokeley on lead guitar in 2012 for their debut EP. The 2014 project Convoys, however takes a completely different approach from their previous album. “We were in a big-boy studio,” Stuard says. “It was a fantastic experience and got us thinking about the songs differently. We are normally a huge and loud-sounding band live while Peter at Dollhouse Productions helped us fine-tune into a more vintage pop sound.” The disc’s lead song “Magic Touch” begins with a haunting dark-rock tone, while the cyclical “Night Swimming” (no relation to R.E.M., by the way) brings a melodic and nostalgic tone. Whaleboat is playing only their second show outside of Savannah at the Tin Roof on Friday. Stuard says, “Expect to be sonically driven to the darkest deepest depths of the ocean and back to the surface just before you run out of air.” —Kalyn Oyer FRIDAY
