WE ARE THE OCEAN kick off 2016 with the release of a brand new single, an inspired cover version of the London Grammar hit ‘Hey Now’. Released on 8th January the track can be heard live for the first time when the band head out on tour this month.
Having had a busy year so far with the release of their fourth album ‘Ark’ preceding appearances at the Reading & Leeds Festival and several singles including the title track, ‘Holy Fire’ and ‘Good For You’ which were all playlisted at Radio 1.
Cover Of London Grammar’s ‘Hey Now’
The Essex four piece who consist of Liam Cromby (vocals), Alfie Scully (guitar), Jack Spence (bass) and Tom Whittaker (drums) originally performed the track for the Radio 1 Live Lounge session last November to an amazing response. They then re-recorded the track and filmed a video (directed by Daniel Broadley) at Middle Farm Studios where they recorded ‘Ark’ with producer Peter Miles. Chris Sheldon has re-mixed the new single version of ‘Hey Now’. On choosing this song the band explained: “We were looking for a song we could really out our stamp on and listened to a lot to see what intrigued us. We are all big fans of London Grammar and when we thought about doing ‘Hey Now’ ideas immediately started forming for the strings and the arrangement. So we went with it!”
