De bandnaam van Sue The Night bedacht de Haarlemse zangeres Suus de Groot tijdens de momenten die haar inspiratie geven bij het schrijven van nummers: de nacht.



In 2011 staat de groep in een kleine samenstelling in de finale van de Popprijs van Nederland in de categorie singer-songwriter, die uiteindelijk wordt gewonnen door Yori Swart. Naast Suus zijn Linda van Leeuwen, Simone van Vugt, Matthijs Barnhoorn, Tobias Ponsioen, Nana Effah-Bekoe, Jasja Offermans en Thijs van der Klugt in afwisselende samenstelling op het podium te zien. In 2014 verschijnt de single Top Of Mind, waarmee Sue The Night al veel aandacht krijgt.

Begin 2015 verschijnt het debuutalbum Mosaic, waarvan ook The Whale als single verschijnt.

Songtekst

It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, a whale
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, a whale
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, a whale
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, a whale

Well, have you read this, have you heard about this
It's the twenty-first century
People to meet and get to know
Friends to grow and some to let go

Well have you heard
About the nighttime into the fire
Tell me now: have you heard
You must have heard it, but stopped asking why

It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, a whale (And it is a whale)
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, a whale (It is a whale)
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's a whale (And it's a whale)
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's a whale

You must have heard it through the walls of glass
While you were high and dry behind your desk
Peer-to-peer but no common talk
Where do your morals come from

And who is your judge, Who is your judge, who's judging you
Who is your judge, you ain't got nothing to judge
Who is the judge that judges you
You ain't got nothing to judge

It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's a whale (A whale in the closet)
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's a whale (A whale in the closet)
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's a whale (A whale in the closet)
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's a whale

High society thrives in diamond skies
Stealing views and lives while saying grace
And saying someone's in the sky
There's a spirit in the air
Slowly pushed towards the gutter
All along with all the peers losing faith in each other

It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's a whale (A whale in the closet)
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's a whale (A whale in the closet)
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's a whale (A whale in the closet)
It is the whale, a whale
A whale in the closet, it's the whale (The whale in the closet)

The whale in the closet
The whale in the closet
The whale in the closet

Well, have you read this, have you heard about this
It is the twenty-first century
