Obsession: The Lighthouse and the Whaler

This song "Venice" by The Lighthouse and the Whaler has been a fixture in my head, ears and heart for the past month straight. I find it to be the most addictive and delightful combination of sounds and words - and it's walked me all over creation in recent days, putting a hop in my step every time the ditty loops back around.

Out of Cleveland, with a new September album to boot - this foursome of eclectic indie musicians have every ingredient to hook the masses, with the primary binding agent being their pleasing and effortless knack for melodic songwriting, evident from their earlier discography credits. Having recently dabbled with a producer who's worked alongside The Lumineers and Ra Ra Riot, it's only a matter of time before these sweet songs are igniting crammed festival fields like the other aforementioned runaway hits.

Their newest album, This Is An Adventure, seems appropriately named - don't you think?
