Stranded Whale

folk rock, alternative rock
Hong Kong
Stranded Whale is a folk-rock and alternative rock band based in Hong Kong. The band consists of Jabin Law (vocals, guitar), Tomii Chan (vocals, guitar), Hin Leung(bass), Yikin Lo (keyboard) and Dean Li (drums, percussion).

The band’s name was stimulated by one of Jabin’s songs, “Killer Whale”. A stranded whale is alone and helpless. It is doomed to die. But that might be freedom to it. It’s soon to be free from pain and released by the ocean.

“When it comes to their music, the band are vaguely reminiscent of recent Radiohead, playing a warm tinged strand of progressive pop. Their music is never the sort that tears stereos and rocks out to heavy beats and fraught vocals, or even formulaic structures and catchy rhythms. Rather, Stranded Whale are happier obfuscating the nature of their songs.”

“Their debut album contains eight songs that blend electronic sounds with folksy backing vocals, conjuring up a delicate atmosphere. “Without the audience, everything is just meaningless noises and light shows,” the band writes. Get yourself into their songs, stir your imagination and let the music take you away.”
