NOCEAN are an alternative rock band from Stockholm.
They have been going since 2013. In the summer of 2016, the band made some changes to the line up and also decided to take a new direction with their sound on the second album. Today they have their own label (fair play!) and they are signed to Rambo Music (subsidiary of Sony Music) for distribution.
They have toured all over Europe, played Sweden Rock Festival 2017 and released their brand new album Diamond on the first of December last year. We've been taking a listen to Here For You, the 8th track from the 10 track album.
The band have developed a really nice blend of sounds with this track. I'll be honest we kind of skipped past the weird intro. The first verse kicks in with an almost Jimmy Eat World-esque light guitar plucking with melodic vocals which we love. There's a great production quality to the whole song, and Hanna's vocals are really pretty too.
The chorus cranks the distortion up and gives a nice almost power ballady flavour to the track.
Definitely one to check out, and gives a nice insight to the rest of the album which is available now on iTunes, Spotify etc.
