Blue Whale are a jazz punk quartet from Belfast.
Their aim has always been to veer away from the trappings of the traditional guitar-centric four-piece, and in doing this have experimented heavily with unconventional
scales and time signatures. Their cadenced, angular and atonal compositions tread fine lines between dance and discord, chaos and intricacy, with the resultant aural tension unique in its capacity to simultaneously provoke mental confusion and physical movement.
Their sound has been compared to the likes of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, Television, Swans,Sonic Youth and Slint.

 

Joining Blue Whale is Sister Ghost

Lead ghost Shannon O’Neill is someone we’ve been following and admiring for some time. Aside from killer grunge-vibe tunes and incendiary live performances, Shannon is an outspoken activist combining her art and her politics which is just the way we like it.
