Geppetto & the Whales at Hoxton Bar, London.

On December 17th the Belgian band Geppetto & the Whales will play a show at Hoxton Bar in London.

Putting the band in a specific corner/genre is pretty difficult, maybe some Midlake - The Doors - Strand Of Oaks - Fleet Foxes - My Morning Jacket - Ravi Shankar - The War On Drugs 
It’s Psychedelic, it’s Americana, a bit Folky and now and then Poppy …
The band sounds mature and young at the same time, it blends beautiful little melodies with overwhelming soundscapes.
They don’t follow the basic-rules of songwriting and they’re the masters in singing in harmonies.
The average age of the band is 22, but the band doesn’t sound like that, old souls in a young body?

Sounds interesting? Why don't you listen to their album.

“It has become a pure, often Beatlesque, record on which the songs aren't stuffed with more than it needs, and on which the beautiful three-part harmony jumps in the eye. Songs as Jonathan, Heads and 1814 are accompanied by bright and pure melodies, and the music breaths in a wide, rustic atmosphere..." De Morgen ★★★★ 

"The guys from Geppetto & The Whales have finished their debut album Heads of Woe by which they share a perfectly aimed shot against the winter blues." Focus Knack.

"The other half of the record shares this high standard, so it's hard not to be impressed. It's still early 2014 but this might already be THE Belgian Release of 2014." GoForMusic

"On their debut album, the band proves it is up for the bigger job. Even though it's not an 'easy' record, 'Heads of Woe' blooms a bit more every time you listen to it." Gazet Van Antwerpen ★★★★

"We truly wish them a big breakthrough. And with this record it might even work out. DaMusic

"Mellifluous listening-pop. Their close harmony makes you gasp for breath more than once... Lots of adventure, pomp and circumstance, wrapped in a beautiful package. Thumbs up! Rif Raf
