The Lighthouse and the Whaler, whose name is inspired by the Herman Melville classic, Moby Dick, is a four piece indie rock band from Cleveland. The lineup has undergone some changes since its inception in 2008, while they have received national attention since the release of their debut EP, A Whisper, A Clamour, in that same year. The guys, who have maintained a heavy tour schedule (often with BTR faves like Surfer Blood and Matt Pond PA), dropped by during a recent stop in New York to share a few songs and talk with Maia about the new album.
Featured song: “I Want To Feel Alive” // Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
The Lighthouse and the Whaler’s latest release, Mont Royal, is now available from Roll Call Records.
