Artist Spotlight: Oceana

Oceana's last two years have been quite an unconventional journey. After releasing an EP, Clean Head, a progressive indie record that sounded like an entirely different band than the group that released the conceptual post-hardcore record Birth Eater, the band's been through absolute hell. They left Rise Records, had member changes that included adding and subsequently losing a female member before any material was released, and are having severe monetary issues. In order to continue their extreme creative expansion, the band has launched a Kickstarter account to raise money to release the album. While the rewards may be slightly underwhelming, the most important thing is to see where the band is going next with their new sound. Clean Head was a step in the right direction, and this next record could turn out to be absolutely brilliant. Let's make sure that this record is funded, and donate to their Kickstarter, which you can find here.

  1. This is a great call, I was considering doing Oceana as my artist of the day.
