Noah and the Whale – Last Night On Earth

Emily Bruce

Triangle

Noah and the Whale started off their career making chirpy, sunny indie-pop, meaning that they were pigeonholed in that genre for a little while. But with their second album, The First Days of Spring, they surprised critics by choosing to go in a completely different direction. The heartbreaking LP documenting the demise of a relationship, that was difficult to listen to at times, was an accomplished record nonetheless. It was always going to be interesting to see what they had in store for album number three, however – and with Last Night on Earth, Noah and the Whale have again made a u-turn with their music, embracing an electronic sound.

Opener Life is Life, about making a fresh start, is gloriously positive, and lines such as ‘it feels like his new life can start’ are a stark contrast to the bleakness of the lyrics on the last album. The positivity continues on the next track – ‘tonight’s the kind of night where everything could change’, sings Charlie Fink, and you know he means change for the better. That’s not to mention the album’s first single L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N. – the title says it all. It’s a wonderful song that will get stuck in your head for the rest of the day, in a very good way. It’s nice to see that Charlie has recovered from his previous heartache and is on much happier form.

You have to admire a band that don’t stay safe, never do the same thing, but just make the music they want to make, without caring whether or not it appeals to everyone. Although it was a very good album, The First Days of Spring may not have appealed to some due to its sombre tone and depressing subject matter. However, with Last Night on Earth, the band have gone in the complete opposite direction, and I can only see them gaining hoards of fans with this brilliantly catchy record.
