First band to get me into the whole folk-sound music
English indie folk band from Twickenham, London, England formed in 2006. The band consists of Charlie Fink (vocals, guitar), Tom Hobden (Violin/keys), Matt Owens (bass guitar), Fred Abbott (guitar/keys), and Michael Petulla (drums).
After the release of a few singles the band's debut album, entitled Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down, was released on 11 August 2008. The release made it to Number 5 on the official UK Albums Chart and has received positive critical reviews.
Bet you heard this song on a TV commercial or something:
From January 2009 onwards, the band started work on their second full length LP, entitled The First Days of Spring. Along with the album release, Charlie Fink wrote and directed a film that runs the entire length of the album, also entitled The First Days of Spring.
Fink decided not to feature female backing vocals on their second LP due to the painful but inspiring departure of Laura Marling to pursue a solo career. Her separation from the band did however inspire a change from their traditional sound, signaling a new direction in the bands music and lyrics.
The song "The First Days of Spring" was used as the track of the Youtube documentary "The Gay Rights Movement" from Ryan James Yezak in January 2012. The clip reached over 2 million views.
In January 2010, it was announced that Noah and the Whale were heading to the recording studio soon to prepare their third album, for which the band was considering the title Old Joy, however, in an interview with the website SoonerMusic.com, lead singer Charlie announced that the album would be called Last Night On Earth.

On 3 December 2010 the band released a track from the upcoming album on their official website, titled "Wild Thing". The first official single from the album, "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.", was released on 23 January 2011 and has (so far) peaked at number 14 in the UK Singles Chart. Last Night on Earth was released on 7 March 2011 through Mercury Records.
