Some bands are formed out of convenience. Others are built with the intent of fame. But the best are magnetically drawn together, with all of the natural elements needed to create something organic, earnest and beautiful.
Oliver Ocean is one of those fatefully created bands, and their EP "Until I Go" is a luminous showcase of their individual talents and collective creativity. Layering folky harmonies, indie rock guitar riffs and jazz-infused percussion in waves of waxing and waning soundscapes, "Until I Go" is an impressive and refreshing effort.
Hear the full EP below, and see them live this Saturday at Foobar with Only, The Business People and Creature Comfort. -Caroline Bowman
