about

With his effortlessly unique brand of electronic pop, Oceaán's self-titled debut EP saw its protagonist, Oliver Cean, thrust into the spotlight with acclaim coming from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and KCRW as well as online tastemakers such as FADER, Dazed and Confused, Electronic Beats and many more.

On 'The Grip' EP, Cean's work continues to expand on its electronic foundations with awe-inspriring new intricacies and explorative influences. Says Cean of the new EP :

"I wanted to explore the duality between lyrical context and conceptual production. Taking influences from many facets of electronic music, my main aim was to investigate the effectiveness of songwriting within the electronic plane - whether it be marrying a lyrical concept with similar tonal aspects (inherently present within the production), and more importantly, creating and displaying disparity between them."

Oceaán's forthcoming new EP 'The Grip' is set for release on December 8th on B3SCI Records (US) / Chess Club (UK). The Manchester-via-Brussels producer Oceaán's new single "Veritas" takes the lead from Grip's infectious and scattered beats. "Veritas" locks into a new groove, bouncing with an unbridled vibrancy as Oliver Cean's debonair vocal takes center stage.

Track Name: Veritas
You've always made me feel alone
Now you've got me waiting by the phone
Why oh why are you taking it away
I never meant to make you feel the same again

Because it's since I've wanted to tell ya
I've never had to read right through ya
Because it's since I've wanted to tell ya
I've never had to read right through ya

I've never had to read right through you
I saw you coming back
I saw you coming back to me how I told ya

You've always made me feel alone
Now you've got me waiting by the phone
Can't believe I didn't tell ya
I was only meant to walk you home

Why oh why are you taking it away
It's not the time to lie about the mess you made
Why oh why are you taking it away
I never meat to make you feel the same again

Because it's since I've wanted to tell ya
I've never had to read right through ya
Because it's since I've wanted to tell ya
I've never had to read right through ya

I've never had to read right through you
I saw you coming back
I saw you coming back to me how I told ya

Is it me you're looking for
Or is it me you're looking for (x5)

Because it's since I've wanted to tell ya
I've never had to read right through ya
Because it's since I've wanted to tell ya
I've never had to read right through ya

I've never had to read right through you
I saw you coming back
I saw you coming back to me how I told ya
Track Name: Candour
Wanted somebody
Oh lord
I never wanted anything
I never wanted anyone

Why do you tell somebody
Is it just for love

Waiting for the light
I'll choose that light, forever
Don't talk at once
Make fun
Never let you go
Never let you go
I wouldn't know you wanted to take it

Wanted somebody
Oh lord
I never wanted anything
I never wanted anyone

Why do you tell somebody
Is it just for love
I've never wanted anyone
I've never wanted anyone

Waiting for the light
I'll choose that light, forever
Don't talk at once
Make fun
Never let you go
Never let you go
I wouldn't know you wanted to take it

Wanted somebody
Oh lord
I never wanted anything
I never wanted anyone

Why do you tell somebody
Is it just for love
I've never wanted anyone
I've never wanted anyone
I wouldn't know you wanted to take it

I wouldn't know you wanted to take it (x7)
