Oceanator Shares New Songs ‘First Time’ and ‘Be Here’

    Oceanator has released a pair of songs, ‘First Time’ and ‘Be Here’, from the forthcoming album Everything Is Love and Death. They follow lead single ‘Get Out’. Take a listen below.

    “‘First Time’ and ‘Be Here’ very much live in the same world for me,” Elise Okusami explained in a statement. “They’re describing the same day – one kind of in the afternoon, and one overnight. First Time is what I’ve been calling my Thin Lizzy song, with the harmonizing guitar riff. And Be Here is a little more floaty, synth-y, less in your face-y. Will Yip played drums and my brother Michael played bass on First Time, but Be Here is all me on everything! It was super fun to record all those parts and have the song come together. Even though they sound different I really wanted them to live together, and I’m stoked to be releasing them as a double single.”

    Everything Is Love and Death comes out August 30 via Polyvinyl.
