The Lighthouse and The Whaler are an indie rock band from Cleveland, OH known for their pop arrangements full of cinematic soundscapes and percussive harmonics. Consequence Of Sound calls them “exceptionally vibrant and full of life” and NPR described their music as “agreeably effervescent folk-pop, elevated by forays into orchestral grandiosity.”
Paths is the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed LP Mont Royal, which saw the band crisscross the States with Ra Ra Riot, Run River North and Surfer Blood. It's an EP about finding your way and understanding your journey, with songs that address universal questions of who are we, where we have been and where we are going.
“Paths is an EP about changes,” says songwriter Michael LoPresti. “It’s not easy to be in a band. We’re constantly battling for relevancy while trying to make music we love. Most of the time we’re doing that while trying to balance families and providing for them. I look back at my life and I look at all the things I could have done better, it’s not really regret, it’s more realization then anything. We’re all on a path and I just want to find mine.”
With more new music on the horizon and Paths building steam this is the sound of a band emerging from a journey with stories to tell. Their compelling and beautiful new music will undoubtedly solidify The Lighthouse and The Whaler as a timelessly tuneful indie rock band.
