The First Days of Spring is the new record from Noah and The Whale. This album is a lot more orchestrated than their last pop record. None of these songs make you want to tap your foot or do dance moves like "5 years time" off of Peaceful, the world lays me down. But, it is a much more mature record for a band that now has the potential to last a while. I think that they realized it would be too hard to follow up their last record with the same sort of songs. These are all very chill but not boring. The choir adds to songs like Blue Skies or Love of an Orchestra.
Also this film is going to be fantastic
