Sometimes you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, you just need to make it your own. Take Yorkshire post-hardcore act The Ocean Between Us for example: though barely making the final curtain call to a genre already bursting at the seems with mediocrity, they manage to stand out as a beacon of hope on their recently released debut EP. Mixing everything you’ve loved about “heavy” import acts from the past three years, minus Oli Sykes and synthesizer, and injected with youthful energy you can’t fake, we dare you to not begin destroying everything surrounding your computer upon hearing this act!
The truth is, we loved this release so much thought we’d cut out the middle man and bring you a taste of it right here on UTG! Click below to stream the lead track, “Nice One Kid, You Just Brought A Knife To Gun Fight,” then continue to sampler the EP’s monstrous final cut, “Hearts Of Lions.” If you love what you hear and want more, PLEASE click here and purchase a copy of this excellent release for yourself. We’d LOVE to have The Ocean Between Us come stateside, but we need your help to make that happen!
