Antwerp folk-rockers launch new album
Four years after the release of their wonderful debut album ‘Heads Of Woe’, Geppetto & The Whales furthers its tale with a second longplayer: ‘Passages’. They ducked into the studio with Brian Joseph, who also directed the dials for Colin Stetson, Bon Iver and Sufjan Stevens.
The six from Antwerp combine peaceful, pure melodies with cheery (and sometimes dark) lyrics. Amongst others, Ben Lester (The Tallest Man on Earth), Rob Moose (The National, Arcade Fire), Trever Hagen (Bon Iver) and Jeremy Boettcher (S. Carey) are to be heard on the album, which will be released in September.
