BLUE WHALE. belfast

There aren’t too many “experimental party” contenders around in 2014, but even if they were ten-a-penny in Irish venues, we reckon Blue Whale would elliptically battle them off the dance floor with ease. Taking instrumental post-rock and sticking a glitter ball above it, this Belfast collective have faith in the little-known adage (possibly just invented) that those who dare to take chances sonically, reap the musical rewards. Bits of Can and Krautrock, jazz signatures and dead-ahead guitar riffage coalesce when Blue Whale perform. That it doesn’t end up a clumsy cacophony says everything about their instinctive melodic nous and musicianship. Note: if some of this stuff proves difficult to actually dance to, it’s just because you’re a pre-programmed, awkward 4/4 robot.
