Born and bred Brisbane band Whalehouse are a new wave punk outfit influenced by the likes of Devo, The B-52’s and Blondie.

Released in early 2018, their debut single “Sexy Whale Beach Party”, produced by Aidan Hogg (WAAX, Landings) and mixed by Miro Mackie (Cold War Kids, St. Vincent, Bishop Briggs), received much love from community radio and is the perfect introduction into the Whalehouse world.
