Noah And The Whale – 5 Years Time

I wonder if you were to do a thesis on the likelihood of tune becoming memorable based on its whistling quotient what the results be. I’d hazard a guess that the presence of some lip rounding increases the likelihood, I mean you’d have the postman of the world on your side straight away. And so it proves with London’s Noah and The Whale’s ‘5 Years Time’, a little gem from the summer with enough cuteness to match even the biggest of crèches. In fairness the whistling is only a quarter of the joy as Charlie Fink and Laura Marling’s vocal partnership and the mandolin parts are equally dewy-eye inducing. Given the quality of their material (see also) it is somewhat surprising how low key the reaction has been. The band’s debut album ‘Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down’ was released last month and is just the tonic if you are up for some fun, fun, fun. KD

    2 Atoms In A Molecule has the same affect for me- some of those tunes are just bloody infectious and you cant help bopping along!Their Dublin gig bloody well conflicts with Port O’Brien….might be a coin toss but Noah is a bit closer so hopefully he will be back sooner than Port.
