BLUE WHALE

http://bluewhaleband.co.uk/

Blue Whale are an experimental band from Belfast. To celebrate the launch of their new single and video ‘Jack Irons’ they are playing a small Irish Tour.

“The mathy, jazz-flecked brew hurtles through a thorny tunnel of riffs and percussive flailing – it should be utter chaos, but Blue Whale make it honeyed.” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT

“Blue Whale are steadily earning their stripes as one of the country’s most thoroughly forward-thinking bands of a generation.” – THE THIN AIR

“I really like Blue Whale… they kind of remind me of Albert Ayler playing with a bunch of kids that grew up on Steve Albini records.” – ANDY CAIRNS, THERAPY?

“There aren’t too many “experimental party” contenders around, but even if they were ten-a-penny, we reckon Blue Whale would elliptically battle them off the dance floor with ease.” – HOT PRESS MAGAZINE

“Highly imaginative… exhibiting a meticulous, innovative yet playful style… with a collective eye and two ears towards compositional ingenuity” – AU MAGAZINE

“Wonderfully ordered chaos… post-Rock tinged with Math-Rock sensibilities (Post Rock2 if you will) …it’s exhilarating” – BBC ACROSS THE LINE
