Electronic Press Kit

Ocean Flaws’ new single is ‘Hologram’. 

Could technology ever extinguish human interaction?  

Even now, you will likely spend 20% of your life, or 15 years, watching television in silence.

As we live out our larval lives in ligated apartment blocks, ladalling 

Netflix into our minds, Marx’s true opiate of the masses is coming into focus. 

For Musk, the technological singularity is just 5 years away. 

Looking at this new reality, ‘Hologram’ asks whether humans are destined for anything deeper, than to “live on TV”.  

  

And what better way to represent our increasing symbiosis with technology, than a music video in which a girl from Hackney falls in love with a humanoid sex doll?    

Watch it here.

Sea you down the road...

Biography

Ocean Flaws are one of the most exciting bands emerging from the UK indie scene today. Ornamenting anthemic hooks inspired by the Brit Pop era, with the kind of instrumental texture popularised by bands like Television, the sound that results is neo-80s - as if The Cars grew up amidst the humdrum of post-millennial Essex.

On the back of their debut single, Deep Sea Dreaming - released February 2020 - the Essex-based quartet were named one of John Kennedy’s “Hot Ones” to watch out for, on Radio X’s prestigious Xposure show.  

Following a string of sold-out shows on London’s live circuit, including a support slot with Oasis’ own Andy Bell, Ocean Flaws built on the momentum with their sophomore single - Spirit Level - released in October 2020. The track garnered airplay from Radio X, BBC Introducing, and even secured a spot on SiriusXM host, Eric Alper’s, “Best Indie Music” Spotify playlist. 

The band’s third single, Touching Down - released in the wake of COVID-19 - showcased a more introspective side to the group, with their guitarist stepping up to the mic for the first time ever. Once again, the track landed, and was spun on BBC Radio 6 by the legendary Steve Lamacq, and named This Feeling’s “Track Of The Day” in March 2021. 

Touching Down was also spotlighted in the Unsigned Guide’s indie music blog, which dubbed the sound “neo-80s synth...with some zesty indie pop vibes, akin to Blossoms and MGMT.”

Clearly, Ocean Flaws are “onto a winner”. 

The band have just released their greatly anticipated summer 2021 single, Hologram, and are preparing to gig with Drools - for This Feeling - on 10th September at Water Rats, London.

Lyrics

VERSE

You’re coming on to me, I’m burning hot

She’s making a movie, the final cut

BRIDGE

You’re dousing me slowly with gasoline

You’re telling me surely, you’ve fallen for me

I’m putting a flame out, it’s killing me

You love a try

CHORUS

If that is how we live on TV

If that is why we’re here at all

It matters how you sit next to me

When the hologram comes on

VERSE

You’re looking through me, you’re coming up

I’m shooting a moonbeam, the scene is cut

BRIDGE

You’re dousing me slowly with gasoline

You’re telling me surely, you’ve fallen for me

I’m putting a flame out, it’s killing me

You love a try

CHORUS

If that is how we live on TV

If that is why we’re here at all

It matters how you sit next to me

When the hologram comes on

MIDDLE 8

You’re coming on to me, I’m burning hot

She’s making a movie, the final cut

CHORUS

If that is how we live on TV

If that is why we’re here at all

It matters how you sit next to me

When the hologram comes on

It matters now we live on TV

If that is why we’re here at all

It matters when your lips stick to me

And the hologram goes on

 

And the hologram goes on...
