The Portuguese electro pop group Whales are pleased to release their eponymous debut album, released via independent tastemaker label Omnichord Records.
Following the breakout success of their ex-band mate Surma – who was recently featured on Music Week in the shortlist for the IMPALA European Album Of The Year - the band are ready to introduce their alluring fuse of classical sounds and indie electronica with new fans in the UK. Their first single ‘Big Pulse Waves’ received extensive national radio coverage which led to the trio securing slots at huge international festivals including NOS Alive After the singles "How Long" and "Ghost" (with the video nominated for Berlin Music Video Awards), their sonically expansive sound is technically impressive, with track ‘Beyoncé, I Love You’ enshrouded in shoegaze rhythms and soft electronica, the distorted vocals offering a delicate backdrop for the musical production. The heavy bass rhythms in number ‘Twerp’ are hauntingly beautiful, layered with melancholic lyricism and evocative vocal talent. With the sudden release of their debut album, and the launch of a huge international tour, this electronic pop band are ready to take the world by storm.
