“Love Untethered, Love Unknown” is just one of the melodically melancholic singles from the Ocean Club’s first EP “the 707 EP which won’t fail to leave you sobered through the moody 80’s inspired tonality. The reminiscence to bands such as the Chameleons and Echo and the Bunnymen is definitely there. The Ocean Club didn’t hold back when it came to pouring plaintive emotion all over the track in true Post Punk and Shoegaze form.
There may be an overwhelming about of bands attempting to revive the sound in 2018, but very few acts leave you enamoured by reverb-soaked jangly instrumental progressions in the way the Ocean Club do. If that’s what they can achieve with their first EP, then, I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from the up and coming band in 2019.
