Stranded Whale is a folk and alternative rock band formed in Hong Kong, since 2015.
The group released their first album "Northern Tower" in November 2015, not long after the forming of the band in, showcasing their acoustic soundscape with an 'urban folk' vibe, as the band would like to describe it as.
In 2016, they performed in Wake Up Music Festival (Chiayi City, Taiwan) and collaborated with Taiwanese chamber group Cicada to record a 9 minutes-long single 'Grey' during the band’s three stops Taiwan tour. Two songs are also highlighted in the band's repertoire - 'Why Don’t You' and 'Dies In A Room’, from the 2017 EP “Why Don’t You?”, a 7” lathe-cut project distributed by Hong Kong indie label Sweaty and Cramped. Later the same year, a dreamy and obscure music video of Sunday’s Over was released, demonstrated the band’s avid interest in alternative, electronic and jazz.
Stranded Whale's second album "The Revival" was released in the fall of 2018, a ten-song album signifies the transformation of the band, from urban folk to alternative rock.
