Trendspotting: Indie Bands Making Films, Part 3

Vodpod videos no longer available.

First it was The Dead Weather and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, then Sufjan Stevens, now add Noah and The Whale to the list of indie bands making films. With this endeavor, Noah and The Whale’s chief singer/songwriter, Charlie Fink, has crafted and directed a film to coincide with the release of their new album, The First Days of Spring, which is set for October. The First Days of Spring will be released on Cherrytree/Interscope alongside a film of the same name which marks the directorial debut of Charlie Fink and runs the same length as the record.  The release is the highly-anticipated follow-up to their gold- selling 2008 debut album Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down.

  1. When is a film actually a film? this isn’t indie bands making feature films, simply directing a video to express their vision. So why not? If it was a 90 minute feature and we had to listen to their songs in a concept album for that time a la Marillion’s Brave, then help us. I’d be running for the nearest bridge. As it is, good luck to them.
