News: OCEAN ALLEY release the blissful video for ‘Happy Sad’; Regional tour dates announced for October

The band have received widespread praise for their mesmerising live performances, including all dates on Groovin The Moo 2018 and playing the GW McLennan tent at Splendour In The Grass last month, where triple j declared “Ocean Alley are really, really hard to fault, and their first-ever Splendour set was, accordingly, pretty much faultless… the tent was probably at 120% capacity, spilling out well beyond the guide-ropes”. Still riding high on the success of Chiaroscuro, Ocean Alley will set off for Europe and the UK in September for their first run of headline shows and festivals since their inaugural visit in 2016, before returning to USA and Canada in November supporting long time friend Tash Sultana.

Psychedelic-surf-rockers Ocean Alley – Baden Donegal (vocals), Angus Goodwin (guitar), Nic Blom (bass), Lach Galbraith (keys/vocals), Mitch Galbraith (guitar) and Tom O’Brien (drums) – continue to maintain their position as one of Australia’s most exciting rising bands. Armed with their acclaimed second album Chiaroscuro which debuted at #15 on the ARIA Chart, the independent band have clocked up a number of impressive feats in 2018 including the coveted triple j Feature Album and being featured in The Music’s ‘Top 30 Albums of 2018 (So Far)’. Ocean Alley have gone on to amass 15 million album streams of Chiaroscuro worldwide, 40 million streams across their full catalogue and over 570,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, yet LifeWithoutAndy have boldly declared “Ocean Alley’s biggest days are still ahead of them.”
