"POP Muzik"

Conversing with Oceans is a solo project of Alex Bondarev from the Bronx in New York. The Gold Rush is the guy's debut single, and it gave me some Keane sensation, which in my opinion is always a good feeling. - POP Muzik

"Eat Sleep Breathe Music Feature"

Today’s song is “The Gold Rush” by Conversing with Oceans. This is the side project of Bronx band A Moment’s Worth lead vocalist Alex Bondarev.

This project shows his versatile song writing abilities and is a departure from the loud rock music made with A Moment’s Worth. Bondarev explains he began writing songs while in the band that were 
”even more introspective and more experimental in their nature.
They also had a different voice, a different story to them–a voice and story that were my own.”

This is the latest song from Conversing with Oceans. It is a upbeat ballad that makes the heart flutter with its beautiful piano melodies and gut wrenching love lorn lyrics. This is sure to catch your ears and make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

"Wolf In A Suit Review"

Mix in those Ska and reggae sounds, that perfect pop voice and that cruising next to the beach feel and you get “LA JØLLA” – a fantastic song creation of Alex Bondarev’s musical alter-ego Conversing with Oceans. It’s just a great song to listen along while you are driving with your windows down and with just you and the road on your mind. You might be feeling down and out but the lyrics will pick you up and push you forward into doing something great. - Wolf In A Suit


Still working on that hot first release.



Conversing with Oceans is the solo project of Alex Bondarev.  Today, Conversing With Oceans releases his debut single, “Deeper", a track that is a pure and powerful testament to love, and features a collaboration with the Grammy-nominated John Forté, who co-wrote and produced Fugees’ groundbreaking LP The Score.  Of the single, Alex explains, "I came to the Bronx as a Russian refugee when I was 8 years old. Fugees' The Score was the first tape I'd ever purchased at a street fair in the Bronx. I remember looking at it and thinking, Hey! I'm a refugee!" And it blew me away -- completely opened my eyes up to the raw power of music. When John Forte, the Grammy-nominated co-writer and producer behind that very album heard the track I was working on and was eager about collaborating, it was a tremendous honor, and a full-circle kind of moment for me." His narrative begins in Grozny, formerly of Russia, when the unrest of war led him and his family to immigrate first to India, and then to the Bronx. Having music as his anchor from an early age, he started his first band (A Moment’s Worth) with his best friends from grammar school. Their brand of optimistic rock resonated deeply with audiences as they made front page news of New York Press, won the first College Battle of the Bands, and received the Elfenworks Social Justice Award for their song “Dedicate.”In 2013, Alex and Elfenworks began their official partnership, working together closely to spread a message of hope. Alex has since composed music for Google and had placements in national television ads and programs. His compositions have over a million streams on SoundCloud. 

Alex’s latest endeavor, which he describes as even an more authentic version of his voice embodies his devotion to melody and expression of his characteristically introspective lyrical style. Collaborating with the team that engineered the Grammy-nominated “A Color Map of the Sun” (Pretty Lights), he spent the majority of 2015 in the studio honing his new songs, while steadily growing his audience at NYC’s most trusted venues. Conversing With Oceans' first single "The Gold Rush“ quickly landed him a one-on-one showcase with the legendary Randy Jackson at this year’s SXSW and a global distribution deal with The Orchard.
