PREMIERE: The Only Ocean Release “Replaceable”

Lompoc, California born three-piece, The Only Ocean, renders a fresh approach to Rock, marrying a wide range of sub-genres from Psych-Pop and Post-Punk to Acid Rock. Comprised of childhood friends, Wesley Hill, Shae Kakos, and Alex Burdess, The Only Ocean, has quickly become one of Southern California’s beloved.

The first single off of their upcoming album, ‘Replaceable,’ offers both something to dance to and something incredibly honest- something many may find they can relate to. The song begins with a mesmerizing build, drawing its listener in to ensure when singer Wesley Hill sings opening line, ‘yes I know that you love me, but you can see when something’s wrong,’ his words are taken seriously. On the meaning behind ‘Replaceable,’ Hill entrusts, Replaceable is about my struggle with anorexia and body dysmorphia. About how I act as if nothing’s wrong and try to continue my day-to-day though all I’m thinking about is how I look. It also touches on me not being happy with myself, and thinking I’m replaceable to everyone in their lives.’ His transparency is as fulfilling as the melody.

Jonathan DeBaun (The Mars Volta, Le Butcherettes, Antemasque) is the producer and a contributing writer on the forthcoming EP, ‘TOO.’ Follow The Only Ocean for updates on their latest involvements, future release dates, and upcoming show listings.
