Seattle’s Oceanwires Release New Video For “Fuel + Reasons”Debut Album There Never Was a Was Out February 15
The video, which was produced by Matt Wesson and directed by his daughter Grace, premiered at New Noise Magazine and can also be shared at YouTube. About the song Oceanwires’ Dave Einmo says, “In many ways this is the song that defines Oceanwires. It was one of our earliest songs we wrote together. It represents our attempt to build tension with angular guitars and propelling tempos that ultimately release into anthemic choruses. My favorite part is the Krautrock-inspired bridge in the middle, where that repetitive, hypnotic beat builds into mayhem. Aaron nailed that section with his vocal urgency. It’s almost maniacal. It was a fun to write together and send it into various directions before landing on this arrangement and fun to play live too!“
Oceanwires is Dave Einmo (Head Like a Kite) and Aaron Starkey (Gibraltar) with Jeff Baars on drums (Mike Johnson, Long Dark Moon) and Samantha Wilder on bass (Princess). The band’s full-length album wasproduced and recorded by Steve Fisk (Car Seat Headrest, Nirvana, Naked Giants, Soundgarden, Wedding Present, Low, Beat Happening) and Matt Bayles (Minus the Bear, Mastodon).
