1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Well this band has had a few line-up changes along the years, and the only remaining original member is Conor our Guitarist. We’re a completely different band to what we used to be. The rest of us met at a party flat called Kings Mansions while at Uni; we had a jam together and here we are!
2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?
Our name stems from a Malory Knox song we listened to called Oceans. We couldn’t believe the name hadn’t already been taken in the U.K.
3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?
Our band is based in Brighton. The music scene here is one of the best in the country, it isn’t necessarily the best for our genre but we’re working on that! We could recommend so many bands, here’s a few: Dove house, One Eyed Jacks, Quiet Lions, Orchards, Porshyne, Rusty Salt. There’s too many!

Dynamic, energetic, powerful, melodic and narcissistic.
5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?
We just released our second EP "Far From Composure" and you can expect riffs, beats and hooks. We hope at least.
6. Do you have any new music in the works?
Always! We have a lot of writing to do as we’ve only just released the last EP but there’s plenty more where that came from.
7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?
Nothing we can reveal just yet, but there’s big things planned very soon! Sorry to be cryptic haha
