Why Oceans was formed in 2005, and since the band first started touring they have never stopped, impressing audiences with their energetic and infectious live performances. The band pays a lot of attention on matching their audio with visuals, immersing audiences in their live performances. Why Oceans has created a unique style of music that combines alternative with psychedelic and post rock, alongside a film score element. The band have just released their debut album “At Land”after playing an album release party at the Shanghai club YYT. Definite ones to watch.
