Whalebone’s 9th album, recorded over two years and featuring 12 tracks that are all inspired by our immediate surroundings. From Holaweg - a tune about a local holloway leading down to a reservoir not far from our studio, Willowherb dedicated the wild flower that becomes so prolific during late summers in the field next to us and the happiest tune we’ve ever recorded ‘Mellow’. The title ‘What They Do’ came from Richard Powers’ amazing book The Overstory.

The first album release for The Bare Bones. 16 tracks recorded over two years featuring dreamlike melodies, ethereal accompaniments, and meditative cinematic soundscapes.

As the pandemic turned ours, and everyone else’s worlds upside down, and with all live gigs cancelled, we shut ourselves in our little studio, picked up our guitars and began to play. As a warm Spring became a glorious early Summer, and birdsong and the drowsy hum of bees filled the air, time seemed to stand still around the studio. And reflecting all this, our music started to evolve in response. As we followed the music where it led us, this new ambient side to Whalebone felt deserving of its own distinct identity, and so our dreamy, chilled out alter egos The Bare Bones came into being.

As Turn the Seasons

Whalebone

This album traces the seasons from Spring through to Winter. Originally recorded as four separate EPs, we wrote & recorded each set of tunes in each season, which we think adds to the authenticity of the music travelling through the months.

Runes features both Celtic tinged original and traditional tunes alongside some unexpected cover versions. The range of musical styles demonstrates a band which frequently trespasses across both musical styles and borders. Instrumental music with a soul.

Whalebone introduced several new instruments to the Runes sessions including a Taylor 8-string baritone guitar, mandolin, cello and a range of percussion instruments that brought a new dimension to the music. Written and recorded in the Shropshire countryside, Runes features both Celtic tinged original and traditional tunes alongside some unexpected cover versions.

The range of musical styles – from the almost-classical ‘Christchurch Cathedral’ to the summery feelgood riffs of ‘Severn Sins’ and from the plaintive urgency of a version of Derek and The Dominos’ ‘Layla’ to the interweaved lines of ‘Entangled’ demonstrates a band which frequently trespasses across both musical styles and borders. 'The Birds Are Still Singing' deals with the loss of loved ones and a realisation that life continues and ‘Justify’ features the mystical sound of the 8-string baritone guitar – a tune that justifies the instrument.

The logo on the front of the album is based on a floor tile in an ancient Welsh Church, St. Aelahaiarn's in Guilsfield, Powys. The tile showed 3 interconnecting points in the centre of a circle, reminiscent of a Celtic knot and symbolises the band – 3 musicians weaving and intertwining musical lines to create Whalebone’s sound.
