FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –
The indie rock crew from East Texas known as 3weeksplay have released their newest LP record, titled, “Electronic Whale.” The full-length album is comprised of 10 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It is the most significant official release from 3weeksplay since their “The Moon and the Tide” LP hit online outlets worldwide in September 2013, making “Electronic Whale” the second full-length 3weeksplay record to reach their fans in less than six months.
3weeksplay cite as main artistic influences a broad range of alternative rock, indie rock, and classic rock legends. Among the most notable are Radiohead, Deftones, Pixies, Kings of Leon, Pink Floyd, the Killers, John Mayer, Tom Petty, MGMT, and Smashing Pumpkins.
Their own sound, while taking certain elements of each of these greats, remains their own. Lo-fi undertones, combined with striking songwriting and undeniable instrumental expertise combine to make a remarkably accessible, yet absolutely unique album. The sound of “Electronic Whale” is not easy to find under any other name.
3weeksplay write of the themes of their new record, “Our music reflects our life and our opinions. Also, love and heartache. And stories about dreams and road trips.”
The band share creative duties during their songwriting process, with each member having a say in what goes in and gets taken out. Each writes on their own time, too, bringing his personal taste and style to the collective whole.
“We all as a band write together,” 3weeksplay say. “But we also write individually – maybe even a little more often.”
This lends a large degree of texture and movement to “Electronic Whale.” Its tracks can be surprisingly different from one to the next, though always with the consistent timbre that alerts the listener that 3weeksplay is definitely still on the stereo.
What is more, their entire catalog showcases this versatility. With more than 60 official songs now available for sampling and purchase online worldwide, 3weeksplay are very much in their prime as they begin 2014 at a full-tilt run.
“Electronic Whale” by 3weeksplay is available online everywhere. Get in early.
