We Are The Ocean New Video ‘Chin Up’

Well I do love a stripped down video, and this is a pretty good one at that. We Are The Ocean‘s new single ‘Chin Up’ is a lovely acousticy number, with a low-key video to go with. If you’ve ever wanted to watch a band throwing balloons at each other, then this is definitely your cup of tea..

New Music Monday – Rat Attack

On the genre section of Rat Attack‘s facebook page, it simply states ‘party punk’. After a few listens to their tracks online, it doesn’t seem like such a bad description really. Full of angry vocals, power chords and an underlying sense of fun, the Exeter four piece know how to make an impression.

‘Bad Catholic’ starts out with a glam-rock tale of girls, before plunging into a Papa Roach-esque screeching refrain. For a bit more of a taster, here’s their new video for ‘Heartbeat’, featuring the vocals of Liam Cronby (We Are The Ocean). If that’s not enough ,it also has a guy crowdsurfing in a crocodile costume. Now that’s not something you see everyday.

Download ‘Bad Catholic’ from the band’s soundcloud here. Or check their Facebook for more info and UK tour dates in March.

Its definitely been a good couple of weeks for music. Yesterday it was Bring Me The Horizon, today its alt-rockers We Are The Ocean.

This heartfelt tune sounds pretty suited to be the next anthem for a warm summer evening, let’s just hope those days aren’t too far off!

Check out the video below:

‘Young Heart’ is from the band’s new album ‘Maybe Today, Maybe Tomorrow’ out now.

Friday Classic – We Are The Ocean – Nothing Good Has Happened Yet

This has to be one of my favourite songs of all time. Essex four piece We Are The Ocean have been blending melodic verses and screaming choruses since before it was cool. This piece of rocking goodness is from their self-titled debut album, which came out in 2008.

What are they up to now?

The band have just released their fourth album ‘Maybe Today, Maybe Tomorrow’  and are on tour in the UK from January. Check the dates on their facebook page.
