Oceanwake´s debut album “Kingdom” gathered positive, in some cases even raving reviews. It captured very well the essence of their formative years, when they naturally were a new band in search of their own form of expression. In retrospect, “Kingdom” was a compilation of very diverse songs that the band managed to turn into a coherent album.
This time around, with their forthcoming album “Sunless”, the songwriting is far more together but not any less adventurous. Its four lengthy and dynamic compositions are performed in an inspired and versatile manner. And when this is combined with the crystal clear, flawless engineering and production – courtesy of Korpiklaani mainman Jonne Järvelä – it is safe to say that anyone who appreciates an organic full-length album should buy a copy, and give it the undivided time and focus it deserves.
