Nous’klaer audio presents Oceanic’s debut album Choral Feeling. A rhythmically diverse electronic album full of sonic explorations and beautiful moments, all bound together by a sense of colour. The album touches on the core of what music can be for: a sense of togetherness, finding meaning in moments, a way to cope with loss and soundtracking dreams about a different future. The music on this album reflects that in the most personal way. Each track consists almost entirely of his friends’ voices, recorded and transformed into the sounds you’ll hear. No, you can But how Just think of anything How can it just be anything Why does it need to be more Because they’re afraid of it. They’re not afraid of the words Then what are they afraid of The power behind the words How can words have power If you say something, only you, maybe I can hear it. Perhaps someone sitting over near that tree can hear it too. If we say it together, maybe we can reach past that tree and reach that rock. But if us and a million others say them same thing, all at the same time. Then every tree and every rock everywhere will hear us. Trees and rocks don’t have ears. No they don’t but they do. Why don’t they just cover their ears Because then they need to do that every time we use our voice. And use them we did and use them again we shall. They got tired of covering their ears, so they decided to cover our mouths. Won’t they hear us now? We’re safe here. For how long will we be safe? For now. Perhaps until later. Just try. Read the words like I’ve written, but do so like the birds in the trees. You are my sunshine A little louder You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy When skies are grey You’ll never know dear How much I love you Please don’t take my sunshine away Beautiful. Shall we go teach the others When will we have enough to free ourselves We’ll always have more than they do. We only need to not forget I’ll never forget Sing it again. Artwork by Bob Verhoeven.
