Heartbreak sucks. On Noah And The Whale’s latest, the aptly titled “L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.,” Charlie Fink shares his wisdom with us in his skillful baritone, promising that life can indeed go on, and that we can persevere through the hard times. A bit of an expert on the healing process, it seems Fink is finally coming to peace with his breakup with folk songstress Laura Marling, crafting a song that is uplifting unlike the desolate tunes that comprised 2009’s The First Days Of Spring. In the newly released video, Noah And The Whale play a 50s style joint to a rather small audience, as a woman in a red dress dances on her own. A metaphor for loneliness, or individuality, perhaps? NATW’s forthcoming third LP, Last Night On Earth, comes out March 8th. Watch the video below:
