Lompoc, California born four-piece, The Only Ocean, renders a fresh approach to Indie rock, marrying a wide range of sub-genres from Psych-Pop and Post-Punk to Acid Rock. Comprised of childhood friends, Wesley Hill, Dustin Whalen, Shae Kakos, and Alex Burdess. Their music carries the same innovation and weight similar to the likes of Tame Impala and Arctic Monkeys, by blending electrifying hooks and large soundscapes The Only Ocean are a unique and fascinating listen.
Their latest single ‘Cul-de-sac’ taken off their forthcoming ‘Too’ EP is a thunderous example of the bands riff heavy music that is not only bursting with energy but meanders through several avenues of psych.
