Los Angeles’ Ocean Park Standoff premiered the video to their single, “Good News,” today via Team Coco – WATCH HERE. Since the creation of the band, they’ve released two tracks, “Good News” and “Photos & Liquor” in anticipation of their debut EP release on March 3, 2017. “Good News” has accumulated over 2.5 million streams and landed on Spotify’s Best of 2016 playlist.
On “Good News,” Samantha Ronson says, “We wrote this song because we felt like the news wasn’t the news, it was just the bad news and we were frustrated with how the world seemed to be focused on the darkness because fear sells, but we haven’t lost hope and we want to share that sentiment with as many people as we can.”
Each of the artists behind alt-pop trio Ocean Park Standoff comes from a world all their own. A self-taught producer who built his own studio in the basement as a kid, Pete Nappi constructs deeply inventive productions equally inspired by art rock and underground hip-hop. A longtime DJ known for spinning at high-profile gigs around the globe, Samantha Ronson is also a songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who matches her lyrical smarts with a sonic ingenuity rooted in her fascination with obscure vintage instruments. And as a classically trained vocalist, Ethan Thompson has revealed his refined songcraft in penning hits for major artists and performing at singer/songwriter hotspots around L.A.
The band is kicking off a month-long tour with LOLO in New York City on February 2, 2017, with shows in Nashville, Chicago, DC, and more. The band will also be on Third Eye Blind’s arena tour this summer alongside Silversun Pickups, beginning in June. Ocean Park Standoff will also be performing shows at SXSW (details to be announced soon). Tickets for their February tour available for purchase HERE.
