52 Hertz Whale is a Bratislava settled band, named after world's loneliest whale.

They have released 4-song eponymous EP in 2015. Their first studio album "I've met a lot of people" was released in 2017. Currently they are working on a new material and getting ready for an upcoming diy european tour.

"And 52 Hertz Whale blew everyone else away - it was the most intense, pulsating performance I saw all weekend. They’ve been on my radar a while, and they’re another band who just seem to keep getting better every time I see them. They have that euphoric, post-rock side, and are super melodic, but they also have a captivating power and when they unleash madness, it’s truly spectacular." Derek Robertson (Drowned in Sound) - about Sharpe Showcase Festival

”There is something totally compelling about the band whose intensity pins you to the floor and their songs melodic touch deliver a real compelling sucker punch.”
John Robb/Louder Than War (UK)

”52 Hertz Whale exist at the intersection of towering post-rock, introspective shoegaze and more fiery heavier outbursts of post punk. ” Connor A./gigwise.com(UK)

”Too much suffering in those songs.” Matjaž Manček/MENT Ljubljana
