Oceans Release New Single ‘Voices’

Recently, OCEANS released their first single ‘WE ARE NØT OKAY’ from the upcoming digital EP of the same name, that is due to be released on April 30th. Today, the band follows up with the second single from that masterpiece, titled ‘VOICES‘.

Dealing with schizophrenia, an often misunderstood and yet very serious condition, the song is completed by the mesmerizing voice of Lena Scissorhands (INFECTED RAIN) and once again proves the band’s stunning ability to merge different music styles into their work.

Timo Rotten states: ” This song is fragile and violent. It displays self love and self hatred at the same time. We tried to capture a particular state of mind with ‘VOICES‘, it’s basically our own interpretation of paranoid schizophrenia. 
OCEANS has always been about contrast, because most things in our world do have multiple sides to it, especially with mental health everything is multi-layered.
Normally, I try to transport that with my use of growls and clean singing, but Lena’s vocals put the whole thing on a whole different level. The sheer amount of emotion in this track makes me shiver every time I listen to it.
 “

Lena Scissorhands adds: “Being part of the song ‘VOICES‘ was an easy decision for me. I loved the lyrics and the music right away. The message is raw and very relevant to the current society we live in.

Cooperating with The Ocean In Your Mind, A German NPO, the band adds a very serious tone to their newest output by turning  ‘music for the depressed’ into active help and encouraging fans to join the cause.

Raphael Funck, Founder of The Ocean In Your Mind eV adds:
“We dream of a world, in which people can freely show their vulnerability. We are giving hope a voice and are fighting together against suicide and for mental health. “

The EP “We Are Not Okay” will be released on April 30th and contains four different songs dealing with all aspects of mental illness. Each track wil feature a special guest adding his very own style to the new output of Berlin / Vienna based post metal heroes OCEANS.
