Noah And The Whale live at Mercury Lounge

Noah And The Whale played at Mercury Lounge last night, the last of three shows in New York, and their last stateside for a while.

The band turned in a precise, beautifully-arranged set of songs from their new record, The First Days Of Spring.

The new record is a decidedly dark, emotive departure from their more cheerful debut Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down. It’s the kind of touching, heavy record that can be tricky to pull off live, and the band rose to the occasion.

Noah’s next tour is a string of dates in Europe with Phoenix. Stay tuned at this blog for an exclusive daily tour diary  from the band as they make their way across Europe. More photos from the show after the jump.
