Sounding like the UK’s answer to the latter day sounds of Alexisonfire, We Are The Ocean have gone some way to capture similar levels of intensity and scale to that of those famous Canadian stalwarts. The end result is ten brooding tracks of lush post-hardcore with the odd hard-nosed beatdown and a sprinkling of metalcore flavours, tamed and smoothed down by some slick production. The Dallas Green-esque vocal talents of vocalist Liam Cromby shines throughout with the throaty, raw screams of Dan Brown providing the George Pettit counterpoint to Cromby‘s dulcet tones. The interplay between vocalists creates an effective and powerful partnership that is a constant highlight across the album.
