The Ocean Party – Thursday August 24th from 8pm
This is a rare treat. Triple J favourites ‘The Ocean Party’ found a gap in their huge National Tour to play an intimate FREE show at Federal Hotel Bellingen.
“The music is the perfect blend of hazy drive and introspective day dreaming. The flourishes, the small details are on point (horns, they have horns!). The Ocean Party have always excelled in detailing their own brand of contemporary ennui, stuck in the grey doldrums of the life/work cycle, trying to find time for colour and fun whenever they can. I suppose nearest touchstones are Real Estate and the soft guitar rock of Twerps – although, unlike those bands, The Ocean Party cruise at a more erratic speed emotionally. Life is full of highs and lows; no band expresses this better than The Ocean Party.”
Zan Rowe from JJJ described their last album Soft Focus (the one with The Triffid’s Rob McComb on violin) as beautiful hazy sounds that remind you of summer.
