Artist Bio: Ocean Grove
Aussie oddballs Ocean Grove freely fuse rock, metal, grunge, hip-hop & Brit-pop influences, pioneering what can only be described as 𝗢𝗱𝗱𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰™️.
The eclectic Melbourne-bred trio have released three technicolored LPs, most recently ‘Flip Phone Fantasy’ (2020) and ‘Up In The Air Forever’ (2022). A full-hearted mix of big-sky melodies and some of the most unique storytelling ever to come from a three-piece rock band, Ocean Grove’s third LP expands on many of the things that made ‘Flip Phone Fantasy’ such a hit - huge choruses, irresistible riffs and catchy sloganeering lyrics - but now rendered with a new sense of scope and scale. Hazy, nostalgic guitars wrap themselves around swaggering pop savvy, the trio’s ambition evident on every layer, from meticulous song crafting to head-spinning concepts. A record that looks as far forward into an alternate future as it does take heed from the classics of the past, ‘Up In The Air Forever’ traverses from genre to genre, taking in guest appearances from international chart-toppers Dune Rats (Aus) and Lizzo / Travis Barker collaborator Lil Aaron (USA).
