“Home is where the heart is/Never gonna stop/Gonna make it to the top,” sings Sally of Ginger Ale and the Monowhales in their new single “Home.” As a local band from Toronto, this song holds a special meaning to the quirky group of musicians. Not only does it speak to the incandescent feelings that the word ‘home’ represents, but it also pays homage to the city they grew up in. If you’re from Toronto, then you most likely know how eclectic and invigorating the city can be. If you’re not, you can live vicariously through the Monowhales in their jam-packed video adventure through Toronto.

While the five-piece indie-pop band has stirred up some exciting buzz from their latest single, the Monowhales have found earlier success playing at local rock clubs around the city. Filling out venues such as the historic Horseshoe Tavern, Lee’s Palace, and The Silver Dollar Room, they cultivated a local following that has continued to grow. In 2014, the group released their first EP, “HA!” a collection of songs that show off their eccentric style and lack of inhibitions. This trademarked style has bode well for them both onstage and off. They pride themselves on their diverse use of personality and quirky charm. Citing their performances as “Flaming Lips-esk,” Ginger Ale and the Monowhales is a bubbly mix of punk rock spunk and catchy melodies.


After “HA!” the band has released multiple singles that capitalize on this finely tuned style. “Blue Balls” and “Looking Simple” are fun indie-rock tunes that inspire some great dance floor moves and sing-alongs. “White Walls,” is a bold, rock song that highlight’s the band’s ability to hit it on the harder side.

Now, after feeding off of the energy from “Home,” the Monowhales are preparing for the release of their new EP, “BANG,” set to drop on October 14th. To celebrate the event, the band is holding a show in support of the new EP at the Horseshoe Tavern.
