Take Five with The Alternate Side: Freelance Whales

Fridays on FUV, Take Five with The Alternate Side. This week: Freelance Whales

Since Freelance Whales released its 2009 debut, Weathervanes, the local indie pop band has gone from busking on Brooklyn street corners to worldwide tours, supporting the likes of Foals, Tokyo Police Club and Fanfarlo.

Secure in their own sound now, Freelance Whales' latest album, Diluvia, even takes on a sci-fi and celestial concept with songs like "Red Star" and "Land Features." The band launches a headlining tour in January and will play Maxwell's in Hoboken on January 15 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on January 29.

Not long ago, Freelance Whales — Judah Dadone, Doris Cellar, Chuck Criss, Keivn Read and Jacob Hyman — visited The Alternate Side's Studio A for a session. Watch more videos of the band performing live in Studio A, and read highlights of the band's interview at The Alternate Side.
