Determination and passion is the bread and vegan-butter of this Brighton and London based rock band. Oceans are scribing their name into 2018 with permanent ink. Their surprise EP ‘Far From Composure’ contains all the elements of their formidable sound, with post-hardcore and alternative rock influences. With a glimpse into how 2018 is going to go down, get ready to learn the real sound of an ocean…”
We asked OCEANS about their Top Five Fave Bands
1) Five Kites
These guys are literally incredible! We played their EP launch the other night and it was a sold out show! If you haven’t heard of them, they’re a 3 piece grungy band. We love to play with this band and we often talk of hitting the road together. Lets hope dreams become reality!
2) Rory Indiana
Rory Indiana are the big boys in the Brighton scene! They’ve accomplished so much in the time they’ve been going for, quite unsurprisingly as well! They bring a totally fresh unique twist to the UK underground rock scene. We’re big fans of this band and we look forward to future releases from them.
Orchards are on a new level… When we first saw these guys live we instantly knew they have a bright future ahead of them. They have music videos on YouTube with thousands and thousands of views and it makes us proud to say we’ve played with them. Regardless of genre, they are one of the best bands to have come out of Brighton.
4) Raya Rose
Raya Rose definitely have their heads screwed on and they really know what they’re doing. They’re just an all round great band and they’re live performance is very captivating. Raya Rose are currently in the process of working on some new material so we’re excited to hear what’s to come from them!
5) Quiet Lions
We’re fortunate enough to have Quiet Lions play our EP launch on March 13th. They’re use of vocal harmonies is amazing and they’re music has left our hairs raised on more occasions than one… We look forward to sharing the stage with these guys a lot more and we’re happy to be in the same scene as these guys! Awesome band!
6) Dove House
We’ve done lots of gigs with Dove House. They’re our good buds and they’re a wicked band! They used to be more pop rock but they’re going down a more Indie ambient sort of route which is sick! They have a new EP coming out soon so make sure you keep an eye out for that!
