Alternative indie-pop band Shadow of Whales has a pretty ambitious goal, one unlike most bands: “a passion for creating music and spreading hope through friendships,” in their own words. When so many bands today are manufactured pop acts, or are marred by in-group fighting, it’s refreshing to see a band (consisting of frontman Joshua Flores, his brother Caleb on drums, Chris Fraga on lead guitar, Jeremy Boyum on bass guitar, and JD Vazquez on keys/glockenspiel) share this dream together.

Shadow of Whales is already off to an exciting 2016. Throughout the year, fans can expect a total of twelve new songs from the band, including brand new single “Roots,” exclusively through Patreon, an exclusive digital platform for artists. “Think of our Patreon as a Shadow of Whales Member-Only Access Club to exclusive content that we won’t be releasing to the general public,” explains the band. “[Patreon] gives us a level of connection with our fans and the ability to control what we want to do that iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and other sites just don’t. For the first time in what it feels like forever, we will have the most direct connection with our fans than we’ve ever been able to have online and we are so much more than excited to get started.”

In anticipation of the new collection of songs, Rock On Philly talked to Shadow of Whales about their origins, what to expect from their music, and the special bond they have created.
