Young Oceans
Young Oceans
Young Oceans push the furthest edges of the indie meditative genre with densely layered Eno-atmospherics of equal appeal to the devoted believer, meditative transcendentalist, and discerning artrock fan."" (Noisetrade). Initially, a studio-only project of songwriter Eric Marshall (The Last Royals), the band’s self-titled debut was named Top 10 album of the year for 2012 by RELEVANT Magazine and spawned the companion instrumental collection BEFORE THE BEGINNING and a follow-up EP title ADVENT.

The second full-length effort, I MUST FIND YOU (2014), proved a more complete realization of the sound vision, “a complete mastery of space....the ship that “Achtung Baby” and “Raising Sand” built finds a shimmering harbor in Young Oceans"" (Kevin Ott). Companion instrumental album STEADY THE STARS followed in 2015.


VOICES, Vol. I, revisiting songs across the band’s catalog and featuring a number of notable outside vocalists (Harvest, Leeland, Evan Wickham, Ellie Holcomb, All Sons & Daughters, Sarah Macintosh, and Mike Donehey of Tenth Avenue North) proved an interim collection ahead of the 3rd studio album.

SUDDENLY (Or The Nuclear Sunburst of The Truth Revealed) released in October 2017 and saw the band’s first-ever tour with a handful of club and universities gigs in North America in late 2017 and early 2018. Enjoying the live setting, the band recorded the wholly live film and album AMONG THE RUINS as a representation of the Young Oceans live experience, slated for Spring 2019.
