“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 the madness, it’s truly spectacular.”

Derek Robertson /Drowned in Sound (UK)

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

"Their adrenaline fuelled brand of post-punk switches from high-octane noise rock with elements of prototype grunge to melodic post-rock at regular intervals.They represent yet another hidden gem in Eastern Europe’s burgeoning underground music scene."
Dom Gourlay/Gigwise (UK)

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

"You guys were transcendent! Religious. Spiritual experience. Utterly transported! One of the greatest experiences of my life.“
Guy McKnight/The DMS IV, The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster (UK)

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

“This is punk of 2019.”
Marian Tesák, FLAAM Festival

“...one of the best band’s from central Europe at the minute...“

“...it’s slightly unhinged, quite manic and rowdy yet an emotional experience that one could soon get us as addicted to...“
Keith Goldhanger/Louder Than War (UK)

“The name is fitting as they sound like they know their way round hurt and pain, they have a yearning howl that gives them an air of grittiness, which makes them an exhilarating listen.“
Steven Doherty/ getintothis.co.uk (UK)

“52 Hertz Whale’s performance was my personal highlight - their performance of a song with the longest title in the “Ostrov Hudby” compilation outlined everything that makes your jaw drop and run goosebumps up and down your body. Dominik Prok is slovak Ian Curtis: absolutely raw, har-rowing energy and stage presence, that nobody on slovak music scene possess.“
Patrik Marflák/hudba.sk (SVK)

52 Hertz Whale is a Bratislava-based band named after the world’s loneliest whale. Music itself may remind you of bands such as Preoccupations, Interpol or mewithoutyou. It is angry, ferocious and melancholic, crackled through with vigor and impatience.

They have gathered following not only in Slovakia, but all around central Europe through their live performance which provides almost cathartic experience. With two releases under their belt - 4-song eponymous EP in 2015 and their first studio album “I’ve met a lot of people” in 2017 and just

finished European tour through Germany, Belgium, Poland and Czech Republic.

52 Hertz Whale are currently closed-off in their rehearsal room working on new material before embarking on another journey. In 2017 they played at Slovakia’s largest music festival Pohoda. Furthermore they have played in many clubs with bands such as Algiers (US/UK), The Underground Youth (UK), Les Discrets (FR), The Physics House Band (UK), Soviet Soviet (IT). The band also partook in Czech Republic’s largest club festival Žižkovská noc in 2018, after having been chosen by Fullmoon magazine. In April of the same year, they have garnered a wonderful response at Sharpe showcasenfestival, after which many of the forefront music journalists, critics, and others included them in their top picks of the event. In May 2019, they tooknpart in Liverpool Sound City showcase festival, getting attention from several music blogs and journalist and released a new single titled “Fish In The Dead Sea” ranked as a single of the week in Liverpool’s getintothis music magazine.
