Instead, Oceansize can truly claim to let the music speak for itself. In fact, the only label the band accepts is a genre they coined, 'Progressive Death Indie;' they are all and none of these genres, and the term is also a prime example of their humour. In fact, this author only Savant - Oceansize - Feed To Feed (Box Set) stumbled onto the band thanks to a late night drinking session, Savant - Oceansize - Feed To Feed (Box Set), in which a certain pay-television music channel was playing in the background.
It was love at first listen. I was shocked that this band had not come across my path before. Oceansize are no stranger to support tours, having been taken on the road with the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins, Porcupine Tree, Biffy Clyro and their own personal heroes The Cardiacs. However, this particular tour was an offer that the boys from Oceansize rate as high as any other.
The band have recently been in the studio recording an EP which they hope to release in September. However, the band is unsure whether this material will make an appearance during the Cog tour. So just what does the new Oceansize EP Savant - Oceansize - Feed To Feed (Box Set) like? The whole EP is a more gentle affair.
It would be nice to be able to do different albums and EPs, with different flavours. And we thought about how the second album 'Everyone Into Position' was quite scattered, with a million different styles on it and I think that turned a lot of people off in some ways.
But outside of music, the band is reluctant to set any goals. We started getting a chip on our shoulder about not having broken through and being broke.
We really do live for the day. All we really want to do is to be able to pay our rent. And that is a risky thing to do.
After all, Oceansize are hardly chart-topping, despite their loyal fan base. Me and Gambler had been working for Savant - Oceansize - Feed To Feed (Box Set) long time at the Manchester Academy.
We got to see a lot of great stuff that I would never ever have got to seen had I not been doing that job. If we can afford to keep the rent up on that place, then that means that we can make records forever.
Those riffs, they were my riffs; the concept was my concept so that was my fault. Certain people, specifically Steven the bassistis a fearless composer. Things just fall out of him. He can have an entire concept for a song within a couple of hours, and it will be all recorded, ready to go. I just wish I had his balls! However, Oceansize have been able to humbly allow the music to flow through them and instead create beautiful, layered, Savant - Oceansize - Feed To Feed (Box Set) music.
And while Gambler is noted for also playing keyboards, there are a number of songs in which all three guitarists are operating at once. HarmonieMay 30, I used to collect pokemon cards.
