New Album ‘While Time Disappears’ out November 27th!
OUR OCEANS – “Weeping Lad” (Official Video)
Dutch rock trio Our Oceans share their new single “Weeping Lead” along with an accompanying music video. It’s the third single taken from their new album ‘While Time Disappears’ which will see a November 27th release on Long Branch Records. “Weeping Lead” is available now and can be streamed on all major digital platform.
Singer & guitarist Tymon Kruidenier about ‘Weeping Lead’:
“Weeping Lead is one of my favorite songs on the album, both from a musical as well as a lyrical perspective. Conceptually, it’s quite a paradoxical song. On the one hand, it’s about the deadening numbness of depression, where suicide seems like the only way out. On the other hand, it’s about the realization that true purpose and meaning can only be found in overcoming sorrow and allowing yourself to transform that dark energy into things of beauty. On a side note; ‘lead’ refers to the metal here, so most people will probably mispronounce this song’s title before they hear me sing it.
This gloomy and shadowy music video was once again directed by our friend Job Kuizenga. We were aiming for a 90s inspired look and feel as you can clearly tell from the 4:3 aspect ratio and the VHS glitches. Fun fact is that there were no digital effects used in the production. The hazy look was attained by filming through various drinking glasses while the VHS look comes from running the video through a real VHS player while holding magnets close to the tape and pushing around the tape heads.”
Our Oceans were formed by singer & guitarist Tymon Kruidenier (Cynic, Exivious). Joining him on bass and drums are his former Exivious colleagues, Robin Zielhorst (Cynic, Onegodless) and Yuma van Eekelen (Quadvium, Pestilence).
Our Oceans’ inventive progressive rock centres on haunting vocal melodies that carry heartfelt cries of longing, anger and despair. Bolstered by lyrical fretless bass lines, vigorous drum beats and captivating guitar riffs, Our Oceans lace singer/songwriter influences with modern, progressive rock elements. Mindful musicianship and introspective lyrics are woven into a deeply melancholic, yet uniquely expansive musical universe.
OUR OCEANS Line Up:
Tymon Kruidenier – vocals & guitars
Robin Zielhorst – bass & vocals
Yuma van Eekelen – drums
