Shadow Of Whales is an alternative indie-pop band with a passion for creating music and spreading hope through friendships. Fronting the group is Joshua Flores (Invisible Target), his brother Caleb on drums, Chris Fraga on lead guitar, Jeremy Boyum on bass guitar, and JD Vazquez on keys/glockenspiel. What makes this band truly unique is the experience that all of them have had in aggressively seeking careers in music with their previous bands. They are all songwriters, they all love music, and more importantly, they all love people.
Shadow of Whales made their debut appearance at the Austin Convention Center in front of thousands of people for DellWorld; this act brought them to appear on TV only weeks later on KTBC – FOX 7 and garner praise from people like the Indie Band Guru with statements such as, “Shadow Of Whales has the tunes and the drive to make a big impact on the strong local Austin scene and beyond”
Less than a year later, SoW released their debut self-titled EP and saw an explosion of support from both their quickly growing fan base and the web. “[Shadow of Whales has] dropped one of the sassiest and catchiest records in recent memory” claims Under The Gun Review. The debut EP charted on CMJ’s top 200, was added to regular rotation in Starbucks Coffee Shops across the U.S. and Canada, and was featured in the film “The Guards Themselves”. They’ve played their music on festival stages such as Vans Warped Tour (San Antonio), RedGorilla, Heart of Texas RockFest, and South by So What?! playing with bands like Mayday Parade, Courage My Love, Jonny Craig, Circa Survive, Cartel, and many more.
Shadow of Whales is releasing their new EP “What We Do” on August 14th 2017 and will hit the road to spread their positive message as far as sound can reach starting in Austin, TX on August 17th, 2017.
