“Seek the ANTITHESIS. In any art form we engage with, there is need for inventive thinking that goes against uninspired standards.”
UNFD is thrilled to announce the signing of Melbourne odd world experimentalists Ocean Grove to its flourishing roster.
The first taste of the future of Ocean Grove has landed. Are you a ‘Lights On Kind Of Lover’?
“We’ve spent the better half of the past year in ambivalence deciding who and where is the best stream to entrust with our music and we were very close to making decisions to the contrary. Loyalty and belief mean a lot more to OG than hypotheticals or promises. UNFD through their actions, not words, proved to us that they were the best entity for us to take our art above and beyond. We are especially excited about the creative freedom they have afforded us.” – Luke Homes, vocals.
Ocean Grove Operate On Their Own Terms.
Ocean Grove are not just another band; they are a collective. Emerging from the depths of Melbourne in 2010, Ocean Grove have progressively developed a distinguishable sound like no other. As one of the most talked about acts in the heavy music world, Ocean Grove aren’t going to buy your respect, they are going to earn it as per their binding agreement in The Rhapsody Manifesto.
Ocean Grove Create Art With No Limits.
Their previous genre-bending EP, Black Label (2015), showcased the evolution of their creativity by track listing each song in the the order of creation, with multi-faceted drummer Sam Bassal overseeing the recording, mixing and mastering process. On stage, the beast appears and their penchant for the bizarre and erratic has made Ocean Grove one of the most in demand acts on Australian Stages. One can witness the chaos unfold nationally on the Equinox tour in June.
It’s Time To Turn The Lights On.
“Ocean Grove are the freshest heavy band I’ve heard in years. Great guys doing something new, I back them hard.”
– Josh Smith, Northlane
“Ocean Grove are one of those exciting new bands that can pull off even the strangest of things and still be great. Five unique characters just getting weird on stage hasn’t looked this good since the 90s.”
– Jake Taylor, In Hearts Wake
