Local heavy dons Ocean Grove have released a burner of a new track, 'SUNNY', to keep ravenous fans satisfied prior to the release of LP number two.
'Sunny' gleams through with a distinct, Britpop charm, eschewing the band's roots in nu-metal for a more accesible, anthemic alt-rock sound. As the title suggests, the new single celebrates the power a good day in the sun can have on your mood, with frontman Dale Tanner explaining the track as a metaphor for getting out of a rut:
"'SUNNY' is the musical antidote to the self induced slump that our generation, modern society and Ocean Grove as individuals can all relate to on some level. It’s a kick up the listener's ass to kill the anticipation of what may be to come on any given day, and to get out into the Odd World despite their depression, existential dread or hangover.
"At the same time this track is also an ‘F You’ to anyone that looks down upon the recluse behaviour inherent in the youth of today and the joy that comes with partying, staying up late and sleeping in all day because you can."
Ocean Grove have also confirmed the title of their upcoming LP will be Flip Phone Fantasy, and is set to hit shelves around the country in early 2020. In the meantime, the band are touring around Australia with The Amity Affliction to kick off 2020 before jetting off to Europe with Crossfaith.
