1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Linus Valdemar and Dan Joe form the duo The Oceans. Met at a jam in 2014, ended at a morning party where we decided to form a band and not long after we started writing and recording songs. In 2018 and 2019 we released an EP dilogy which was well received and reviewed in our homeland as well as abroad. And on the 9th of September our debut album called ‘Love Above All’ will be released on Celebration Records.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

After some time of writing and recording songs we felt we were ready to release a demo. We needed a name and had a few suggestions. Linus came up with The Oceans and it felt and looked right. It reminds us that is everything is connected and that we are all part of the same stream, structure and world.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based out of Copenhagen, Denmark. The music scene there is very diverse and vibrant when dig into the small clubs, the small scenes and the whole upcoming scene. We have a lot of great bands and artists like School Of X, Prisma, Go Go Berlin, Luster, The Entrepreneurs etc.

4. How would you describe your style?

We describe it as Noise Pop, Nugaze, New Wave, Shoegaze. On our new album the sound has evolved to also include an Alternative Pop/Indie Pop kind of sound.

5. What have you released that we can check out?

The shoegaze single ‘So Long’ and the Noisepop dilogy ‘EP I’ and ‘EP II’. They can expect Riotous guitars, insistent beats, captivating melodies and a pulsing, paradoxical sea of chaos, noise, and serenity.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Our debut album ‘Love Above All’ due the 9th of September on Celebration Records.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We are playing a few shows in Denmark (Copenhagen and Odense) in October and have a few dates in Germany in November to be announced.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Climbing the next steps up the latter. Tour in Germany, the whole of Scandinavia, then maybe UK. Try to get booked for bigger festivals and showcase festivals in Europe. 

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

All streaming platforms (YouTube, Spotify). Right now you can buy our vinyl on bandcamp. Soon on Celebration Records.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The melody. If that stays with the listener the rest of the day, we’ve succeeded.
