Hailing from London, Noah and the Whale are at the vanguard of the British new folk movement with signature singles 5 Years Time and L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N. doing much to define the genre. They count Laura Marling and Emmy the Great among their former members.
The band released their third studio album, Last Night on Earth, last year. The album hit number eight in the UK charts, following 2008's debut record Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down and 2009’s The First Days of Spring into the top 20.
An atmospheric and really stylish accompaniment to the band's 2010 single.

Noah and the Whale will be joined by fellow west Londoners, The Vaccines. The band released their acclaimed debut album What Did You Expect from the Vaccines? last year and it reached number four in the UK before becoming the biggest-selling debut record by a band in 2011. Their as-yet untitled second LP is due for release this year.
They won the Best New Band category at this year’s NME Awards, beating Lana Del Rey, and were nominated in the British Breakthrough Act Category of the BRIT Awards.
The band have been influenced by both rock and punk and have been compared to groups such as The Strokes and Ramones. Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr produced their most recent song, Tiger Blood, released as a B-side to Wetsuit, the sixth single from the album.
