Bloomington indie rock band Whale Bones released their first full length record, Island Fire, just a few short weeks ago. Island Fire is a body of work that took years to come together, but the wait was well worth it. Each of the 11 tracks could stand alone and hold its own. A lot of attention is being put on the band’s first single from the album, “Backyard”.

Whale Bones hit the studio to work out a live version of the song, engineered by John Bowman and directed by Jake Huber, the video is well worth a watch. No gimmicks, no tricks, just the ferocious force of a band that knows what they’re doing.

Focussing solely on frontman and songwriter Nathan Kane in the beginning, “Backyard” draws the listener in with a soft and innocent intro. As the refrain fades, the guitar picks up in it’s place. Before you know it, quick drums, clambering bass, and exquisite guitar fill the room with raucous sound.
