The Aussie quartet, Oceanics, have done it again – they have released an exclusive stream of their brand new single,”The City”, on MTV Iggy! “The City” will be available for purchase on October 16th. Produced by Jean-Paul Fung (Art vs. Science, Jet, Last Dinosaurs), the track will be off the band’s upcoming album to be released March 2013. Just when we need that reminder of summer fun, Oceanics comes back to us with their Brit-Pop and catchy beats that will get you dancing in your chair!

9th grade classmates, Elliot Weston (guitar & vocals) and Jackson Haswell (guitar & vocals), began writing together in 2005. The introduction of percussionist Andy Geisel soon after initiated years of practicing together within the walls of the groups makeshift loft, all while flaming the hunger within the band to hit the scene. Late 2009 saw the cementing of bassist Tom Garnett’s position, and early 2010 saw Oceanics’ live debut.
Since then the enigmatic four-piece have seen great international success. They have performed at Australia’s renowned Big Day Out 2011 and BIGSOUND Music Conference, supported US pop Quartet “The Like”, performed with “Michi” on MTV Japan, as well as playing a plethora of shows from Sydney to Melbourne and back. Oceanics has also acquired sync’s for both Quiksilver Pro Series and Fox 8’s program “SLiDE”, as well as gaining great radio support on Australia’s youth radio network, Triple J.
The band released their EP, Bright People, on May 15th, 2011, garnering attention from the likes of AOL Music, MTV Iggy, MSN Music, Nylon, Relix, and more! Imprinting their own style on Brit-Pop, they bring their big hollow guitars and clean, jangling tones to the ears of the uninitiated.
Never slowing down, Weston tells us in his Aussie banter, “‘The City’ is more or less about the going ons when we’re on the road playing shows and having a certain love interest playing on your thoughts. The track will be one of our main singles on the forthcoming and currently untitled album, set to be released mid next year.”
Oceanics will release “The City”on October 16th. The band is also set to release their next album in March 2013. Please visit www.Facebook.com/Oceanics.music for more updates.
