The wait is finally over! Oddball icons Ocean Grove release their hotly-anticipated second album Flip Phone Fantasy today. To celebrate, the band are giving fans the opportunity to get up close and personal with in store signings happening in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane this weekend. More details below.
The technicolored album has been praised for its “fresh, optimistic and weird as ever” flavour and named Album Of The Week via The Music, meanwhile Hysteria classed the record as one for the history books, asserting that the name Ocean Grove will never be forgotten alongside a whopping 10/10 review.
In true Ocean Grove fashion the band remained as free and lawless as possible while birthing their second record, answering only to the truths of their famously-coined “Oddworld” while meticulously crafting every creative output themselves, from music production, to merch, to art.
Between the blistering chaos of opener ‘SUPERSTAR’, to the tenants of alt-rock present throughout ‘SENSE AGAIN’ and the dreamy haze of closer ‘FREAKS’, Ocean Grove plough through a thoughtfully complex series of moods and bends on Flip Phone Fantasy, refusing to sit still long enough to be categorised into anything other than pure creativity and resistance to the mainstream.
