Belfast, County Antrim
Blue Whale are an experimental party band from Belfast.
'Blue Whale play a distinctly ear-grabbing brand of unorthodox instrumental rock. Comprising angular dual-guitar riffs, bobbing bass and uniquely danceable beats, they happily wield the standard set-up of most rock bands (two guitars, drums, bassist) but with a collective eye and two ears towards compositional ingenuity.'
(Brian Coney, AU magazine)
'Throw all the sonically challenging genres of music you can think of into a bin, now boot it down the stairs, the result: Blue Whale. Strangely compelling jazz-punk-kraut action from Belfast’s newest aural renegades.'
(Philly Taggart, BBC Across the Line)
