The Whales, formed in 1983, are a high energy folk/blues/post punk rock band,
based in New London, CT but residing between Boston and LA.
“Buddy Holly for the 80’s over-bumptious”
- Andy Dunkley, Rockpool
“The Whales immediately remind one of those long gone days of yesteryear when
young white blues bands discovered fuzztones....sounds real good.”
-Bob Angell, New Paper
"Connecticut's Whales are rock and roll polyglots who ease through ‘70s-style, flying-digit solos and lightly twangy garage rhythms...the New London foursome (is) a loose-limbed touch with a rock solid jab."
