Ocean Roar follows up BPM Recommended album Clear Moon and is described as an experimental counterpoint to Clear Moon, with loose song structures, “endless chords, repeating note flurries,” and “stretched drones.” The press release also states that the theme of the album is “fogdream/obliteration.”
By god, we cannot wait.
