"Tell" by The Ocean Party
However, at the other end of the spectrum is Melbourne's The Ocean Party. Considering the relatively short period of time (in terms of music production) of calendar year 2017, the prolific band has released a collection of B-side type material (our feature here), a tour tape (our feature here), the massively impressive LP Beauty Point (our feature here), and soon the Guilt EP. This material was played to our test subjects in addition to other projects involving band members, such as Ciggie Witch, and attending The Ocean Party's show earlier in the year. And despite all of that music, not one of our test subjects hit saturation point for The Ocean Party. In fact, they all begged to hear the upcoming EP. Of course we didn't allow them to do that, because "upcoming" has to mean something, and even we have ethics (unless procurement of beer is involved). But we can share with you one of the six EP tracks, "Tell". The song underscores the band's ability to provide introspective lyrical content in a universally relatable manner and wrap it up in a glistening pop song.
Guilty will be out in early December via Spunk Records.
