British indie pop artist22 Oceanspresents their new single 'Home', a beautiful slice of Americana-tinged minimalist electronica previewing their new 5-track 'Home' EP,released via72rpm Recordsand mastered by renowned producerMarc Joy (Primal Scream, Mike Peters, Oasis, Bernard Butler, Golden Fable, Louise Trehy) atFerndale Studiosin Wales.
Since emerging on the indie music scene in 2020, 22 Oceans has been presenting a steady string of new music. While influenced by 80’s influenced synthpop, their new single brings this artist into new territory while retaining their trademark ethereal vocals.
Based in Merseyside, this project is the brainchild of Mike Guy.While originally a solo project, 22 Oceans has blossomed into a fruitful trio, graced by the vocal and songwriting talents of twin sisters Carys and Keeley Hughes, whose stellar tandem of vocal harmonies complement a backdrop of lush, layered sounds.
"The song 'Home' was inspired by ideas about returning to the comfort of your home, which doesn’t necessarily have to be a place, but rather the people who have made a large impact on your life," saysMike Guy.
"The song is rooted in the feeling of happiness you feel when thinking about the memories you’ve made with people you enjoy spending time with. It is a reflection of how we are always connected to those we love, no matter how much time may have passed."
As of February 22, 'Home' will be available across online stores and streaming platforms, includingApple MusicandSpotify. 'Home' will be offered as part of a full 5-track EP exclusively viaBandcamp.
