Oceaán – Grip

Manchester lad Oceaán is full of surprises. You might think you’ve got his particular flavour of tropical electronic pop sussed, but wait ’til you hear this new one, premiered on SOHN’s Radio 1 show last night: closely reminiscent of the slow build and skewed vocals of James Blake’s earlier releases, it’s one you have to wade into knee-deep before it suddenly hits. And when it does, it just keeps getting better. ‘Grip’ is the first of a new wave of material from the producer and vocalist, with more details coming soon.
