The long-anticipated follow-up to 2015's "From What You've Heard", "Broceans" - an amalgamation of the passion of country, the energy of rock, and the horns of Motown - is a slick, clear announcement: Five Oceans have arrived, and they're here to have a damn good time.
Featuring three brand new songs, "Broceans" realizes the potential of five dynamic and diverse musicians working hard together at their craft. The virtuosic work of their rhythm section is on full display, flanked by inventive horn flourishes and smokin' guitar work to set up a raw, honest, and unique voice that takes you on a journey across each song. "Broceans" captures familiar themes (getting over heartbreak, and searching for new love) and retells them in a fresh, original manner, all while leaving infectious melodies in your ear that you won't get over any time soon. Blending together the boys' penchant for lighthearted fun while taking their music seriously, "Broceans" captures Five Oceans as they truly are: quirky, polished, and fun.
