52 Hertz Whale Short Info

52 Hertz Whale is a Bratislava settled band, named after world's loneliest whale. We have released 4-song eponymous EP in 2015. Their first studio album "I've met a lot of people" was released in 2017. We are currently 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

In 2017 they played Slovakia’s largest music festival Pohoda. Apart from that they have played many clubs with bands such as Algiers(USA), The Underground Youth (UK), Les Discrets (FR), The Physics House Band (UK), Soviet Soviet (IT), Acute Dose(CZ).
