One of our favourite upcoming acts Ocean Grove are doing pretty well this year, their album The Rhapsody Tapes scored really well with our review, they dominated during their support slot on Architects tour and they’re about to play Splendour in the Grass but before they step foot in Byron, they’ve given fans yet another fantastic music video to hook them in.
Frontman Luke Holmes went into detail explaining what the fuck is going on in the video:
This clip delves deeper into the inner workings of the Oddworld of Ocean Grove with the pumping sounds of the Stratosphere providing a pulse. The Oddworld being a place born out of our last record The Rhapsody Tapes.”
“In the formative stages of the record we had this idea of creating this paradigm, our own universe we wanted to more or less write a musical composition for, but as the record came along with its varying soundscapes and quirks it became quite evident that it was now the music shaping and obscuring this world we wanted to create. This place while as idiosyncratic as the music itself, began to mirror and reflect the oddities and challenges of the world we know.”
Yeah, we haven’t had enough LSD to understand either… just watch it then watch them at Splendour or on their upcoming headline tour
