Blue Whale are an experimental band from Belfast

“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 in 2014, but even if they were ten-a-penny in Irish venues, 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”
