Ocean Grove Join UNFD & Drop New Track

Ocean Grove

Experimental hardcore outfit Ocean Grove have announced they’ve signed with none other than Australian record label UNFD. To top it all off the boys have also released a killer new single Lights On Kind Lover.

Ocean Grove are a boundary-breaking odd bunch from Melbourne who showcase their talents through crazy alternative music videos and catchy upbeat tunes. Sounding very similar to Deez Nuts, Ocean Grove showcase hardcore riffage, thrashing percussion, and a radical mixture of hard, clean, and rap vocals.

Lights On Kind Lover is a perfect example of a super catchy tune paired with an eye catching music video that’s completely bizarre. The new track is the perfect introduction for any virgin ears to ‘the Grove as it showcases just how they let their creative freedom guide their musical direction.

The Melbourne band is earning plenty of respect form peers, with Jake Taylor from In Hearts Wake saying Ocean Grove is, “one of those exciting new bands that can pull off even the strangest of things and still be great”.

Ocean Grove frontman Luke Holmes says the band has spent the better half of the last year “in ambivalence deciding who and where is the best stream to entrust with our music and we were very close to making decisions to the contrary”.

“Loyalty and belief mean a lot more to [Ocean Grove] than hypotheticals or promises. UNFD through their actions, not words, proved to us that they were the best entity for us to take our art above and beyond. We are especially excited about the creative freedom they have afforded us,” Holmes said.
