Another Ocean is a song about moving on and starting again. Written as the result of the end of a relationship, the lyrics reflect the feelings of self doubt, isolation and misery, accented by anthemic pop-rock melodies and soaring choral harmonies. Vocalist Leon D Hunter goes on to say; “the uncertainty of the future is an endless ocean in-front of you. This makes you feel like you’re an imperfect person among a sea of people who from the outside seem to be doing well. You become a cast away, who arrives at a separate island to that of your former life.”
Brothers and founding members Leon (vocals) and Cam Hunter (drums / samples), had previously played together in a variety of bands within the Glasgow circuit, but decided to incorporate new members Drew Lesslie (guitar) and Kai Cairney (bass) when they wanted to develop a more prominent electronic sound. The band have now been together since 2016 and feel ready to embark on bigger and better things to come. Another Ocean was produced by Dan Wellar (Enter Shikari), helping North Atlas continue to create the authentic electronic-rock sound they’ve been honing and now feel ready to embark on bigger and better things to come.
Another Ocean by North Atlas is due for release on 8th September 2017 via King Of The Woöds Recordings.
