The pursuit of the strange and wacky and a deep love of pop music is the engine that has propelled Black Whales' music through different genre waters since 2009.
The group has a native ability to take two seemingly polar opposite musical elements and melt them down into something that gels effortlessly. You may feel the aggressive smack of classic garage rock, fused together with soft and hazy synth melodics that emit a smoky, neon glow from under the garage door. You may recognize a thick disco vibe, being bullied by an abusive Moog bassline to present an extremely danceable feeling of doom and saccharine celebration. Black Whales are working on their third full-length album, due to be released this fall 2017. Expect a very special revealing of new music and optics from the band at Upstream on the Killroom Records stage.
