Freelance Whales are the perfect band for Starbucks sipping, lyric loving, alternative music fans. I am not a fan of the word 'alternative' because it makes the music sound like an outsider and not considered as good or as important as 'mainstream' music however I used it in this case as more of a synonym for 'different', 'quirky' or 'eccentric'. Freelance Whales use simple beats and melodies in their songs along with techno sounds to make fun, well-written songs. Their music should not be taken too seriously lyrically however the band are talented musicians with an amazing technique in creating music videos for their awesome songs that nobody really understands, but still loves. Freelance Whales have had quite a lot of promotion via Chuck Criss's brother, Darren Criss who plays Blaine in Glee and is very proud of his brother's work. My favourite Freelance Whales tunes are 'Hannah' and 'Kilojoules' which, deservingly, are their most popular. Do you like the modern day techno sounds of the Freelance Whales?
