‘The First Days of Spring’ – A Film By Noah And The Whale

I’m really enjoying this new trend in bands creating films around albums, much like Edward Sharpe did, and now you can add Noah And The Whale to that list. Charlie Fin, the lead singer of the band, has created a 45 minute long movie that accompanies and is scored by their newest album, The First Days of Spring.

The film is really incredibly shot, with lots of beautiful locations and wide landscapes. From what I’ve been able to put together the film is about life and death, love and loss. The whole thing was shot in 8 days on a meager budget, but honestly I don’t think you can tell that at all. Hopefully this trend continues and more musicians start to dabble in film.
