“I want to exist outside it all, I want to watch everything fall.” I hear what you’re saying The Ocean Party. New single Guess Work does a paradoxically cheerful job of exploring dark feelings of guilt and disenfranchisement of living in an age of globalisation and drone warfare, all in fab indie-pop style.
There’s something about the quick beat and tinkly keys in Guess Work making the tone hopeful and positive, despite the darker message of the lyrics. It’s quite a delight, especially after several listens in a row. The Ocean Party will be celebrating the release of Guess Work in both Sydney and Melbourne in late July- early August, see below for all the crucial info.
