THE OCEAN BLUE

About the Band

Category: Band
Music Genre: 80's

The Ocean Blue‘s debut record on the famed Sire Records label in 1989 achieved widespread acclaim and radio & MTV airplay. The band of four high schoolers from Hershey, Pennsylvania went on to do two more well-received records for Sire, the atmospheric Cerulean and alt pop Beneath the Rhythm and Sound, and a fourth record for Mercury/PolyGram, See The Ocean Blue, before leaving the majors in the late 90s. The band did several independent releases in the 2000s, including Davy Jones Locker and Waterworks, and in 2013 released their first full length record in over 10 years, Ultramarine, on Korda Records, a new Minneapolis cooperative label that the band helped launch in 2013. In 2014, the band released and toured for an LP version of Waterworks, and in 2015, the band's first 3 albums for Sire were reissued on vinyl. The band performed a limited number of special shows in the U.S. to mark the occasion, performing the first 2 albums in their entirety. In 2016, the band is playing 7 cities in South America and working on a new full length record.

🙏 @positivepauly ・・・ #NowSpinning @theeoceanblue “Beneath the Rhythm and Sound” #vinyl They just announced an orange vinyl reissue of this album and preorders are available. I was able to snag all three of the original colored vinyl rereleases, so mine is in white. Nevertheless it’s a fantastic album! Teleworking today, and probably will be more regularly. For those of us that do have that luxury, we are privileged. I’m grateful I have shelves full of records to spin while I work from home. There are many that cannot during this pandemic. There are so many that are not able to work at all now, and who are feeling the emotional and financial pinch. Small business, service people, the behind-the-scenes folks who do so much but get so little in return. Extremely vulnerable to times like these And then there are those in the health care industry, soldiering on, weary to the bone in impacted areas, don’t know anything different. They are true heroes. It’s a surreal time right now. I haven’t felt this way since 9/11. That churches and schools in my area are closed is unprecedented. This is a big deal. Be kind, wash your hands. Cover your cough. Leave some TP for others. Don’t believe everything you hear. But most of all - watch out and care for each other.
