Deep Sea DreamingOcean Flaws

An Ocean Flaws Tale...

Our debut single, Deep Sea Dreaming, just washed onto the shores of the internet. 

 

Coming from Essex, and as a guitar band, we were hard-pressed to find both local and internationally successful music to look up to. 

 

Even Plan B (who was expelled, and martyred, by the same secondary school we attended) couldn’t speak to us in the same way that artists from up north and across the oceans could. 

 

And so, out of this artistically stagnant swamp arose the fresh sugary sound of Ocean Flaws. Our song, however, isn’t just an attempt to give Essex a name beyond Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli, it’s an attempt to synthesise our own brand of the glittery neo-psych exported from Perth since 2010 - pimped with a generous helping of anthemic pop from places north of the orbital.     

 

Not knowing what to expect, we stepped out of the M25 on 16th September 2019 and embarked on a voyage to the fabled land of Liverpool, where the wizards at Sugar House produced our debut track, Deep Sea Dreaming.   

 

For two days we toiled in sunny Saint Helens, and walked away with a radio-ready tune furnished with foamy synths, washed-out guitar, and crashing choruses. 

 

Last to land was the music video. In true indie style we pulled together a swashbuckling crew of 17 friends, strangers, and those as yet uncategorised, to help produce the magical feature set in Suffolk, which you can watch in this press kit. 

 

Against 12 hours of torrential rain - and a complete lack of insurance/good umbrellas - we battled, and yet, left completely unscathed (if you discount the arse-shaped dent on the Rover’s roof).   

 

We hope you enjoy Deep Sea Dreaming as much as we did bringing it to you.    


Sea you down the road...

VERSE

Feel for me,

And wade in at the deep end when the sun's down,

Now you're free,

I'm giving you time.

BRIDGE

This lie is all you ever need me for,

It's time,

You're cutting and I know the score.

That's fine,

It's something that you can't ignore.

CHORUS
Lovesick lady you're on my mind,

But in the morning you'll be fine,

Deep sea dreaming we're out of time,

And in the corner I'll be...

VERSE
Call on me,

And meet me by the wayside if you're in town,

Now you'll see,

I'm waving goodbye.

BRIDGE

This lie is all you ever need me for,

It's time,

He left you and you needed more,

That's fine,

It's everything you've waited for.

CHORUS

Lovesick lady you're on my mind,

But in the morning you'll be fine,

Deep sea dreaming we're out of time,

And in the corner I'll be...

POST-CHORUS

Singing my dreams (x8)

CHORUS

Lovesick lady you're on my mind,

But in the morning you'll be fine,

Deep sea dreaming we're out of time,

And in the corner I'll be...

POST-CHORUS

Singing my dreams (x8)

CHORUS

Lovesick lady you're on my mind,

But in the morning you'll be fine,

Sweet dream baby we're out of time,

And in the corner I'll be...

OUTRO

Feel for me,

And wade in at the deep end when the sun's down.
