Imprinting their own style on Brit-Pop, Gold Coast's “Oceanics” bring their big hollow guitars and clean, jangling tones to the ears of the uninitiated. “just like Jeff Buckley meets the Kook the boys’ tremendously textured tunes bob in an exquisite sea of liquid electrics, seaside acoustic-work”

Biography

Imprinting their own style on Brit-Pop, Oceanics bring their big hollow guitars and clean, jangling tones to the ears of the uninitiated. 9th grade classmates Elliot Weston and Jackson Haswell began writing together in 2005. The introduction of percussionist Andy Geisel soon after initiated years of practising together within the sweaty walls of the groups makeshift loft all whilst flaming the hunger within the band to hit the scene. Late 2009 saw the cementing of bassist Tom Garnett's position, and early 2010 saw Oceanics' live debut.
Since such time the enigmatic four piece have performed at Big Day Out 2011 (Gold Coast), supported US pop Quartet “The Like”, have had videos featured on MTViggy, Artist of the day on MSN & AOL in the USA, performed with “Michi” on MTV Japan, sync’s for Quiksilver Pro Series & Fox 8 program “SLiDE”, showcase at Bigsound Music Conference, had a plethora of shows encasing South East Queensland, New South Wales, many successful shows in Sydney and Melbourne including multiple performances in front of 27,000 people at skilled park (for the Jetstar Titans) and also supported such acts as The Grates, Sparkadia, Deep Sea Arcade, Ball Park Music, The Cairos, Seabellies, Glass Towers and Drawn from Bees gaining reviews from Time-Off’s Sam Hobson:
“…just like Jeff Buckley meets The Kooks… the boys’ tremendously textured tunes bob in an exquisite sea of liquid electrics, and curt, seaside acoustic-work”
And Fasterlouder:
“Oceanics were greeted by an excited crowd and left them on a raging high. How is that possible? They were at the top of their game, consistently belting out indie-pop deliciousness that had the crowd dancing from start to finish.”
With the wizardry of Aria winning producer/engineer Wayne Connolly, the support of Alberts Music and an array of pop infused tracks, the follow up to the Oceanics debut EP "Get Friendly, Mistress Maybe", Oceanics is sparking the ears of the uninitiated with their new EP – “BRIGHT PEOPLE”!!
