Australian nu-metal band Ocean Grove have delivered their raucous new single, SEX DOPE GOLD. The track is the latest offering from the bands hotly-anticipated third studio album, Up In The Air Forever, set to arrive this April.
“Contrary to the abundant messaging we unconsciously receive daily through pop culture, television and advertising to embrace and satisfy our sensory urges, SEX DOPE GOLD is the antithesis to this “norm”," the band share.
"This song speaks of the trap we sometimes fall into in the material world: insatiable material consumption, addiction to sensory gratification and the inflation of the false ego. Ultimately, these temporary and reactionary experiences are merely an illusory escape route from the uncomfortable and unknown. If the ending of Scarface tells us anything, it is that the pursuit for sex, money and power may not turn out the way we'd hope and that it's a vacuous pursuit. Let your ears be your eye and see your world’s truth on a platter.”
Across ten tracks, Ocean Grove are set to push the boundaries of their sound, weaving in threads of Brit-rock, pop, grunge and punk into the records sonic palette. The genre-bending release celebrates individuality and celebrates personal freedom, expression and creativity. The album follows up the bands 2020 sophomore record Flip Phone Fantasy, which debuted at #8 ARIA Album Chart and receiving critical acclaim upon its release.
Up In The Air Forever is out April 22!
