Being As An Ocean 3

Official press release:

San Diego, CA’s Being As An Ocean has signed to Equal Vision Records and is now premiering a new song and music video for “Dissolve” via Alternative Press. The video was produced by guitarist Tyler Ross and labelmate Daniel Wand, of Capsize.

Vocalist Joel Quartuccio states:

“We are ecstatic to finally get the opportunity to work with the family at Equal Vision Records. Our relationship has been a long time in the making, and it is like a dream come true to be able to call ourselves part of the team. Ever since we met Dan Sandshaw, EVR’s president, we knew that the label’s ethos and passion for the music was akin to our own and that we didn’t want to settle for anything less. We are eternally grateful to EVR for sticking it out through the years with us to see this beautiful partnership to fruition.”

Sandshaw shares:

Being As An Ocean is one of my favorite bands and I’m honored to have them join our family. I look forward to working with them on inspiring new music filled with love, hope and compassion.”

The new single was recorded in Atlanta, GA at Glow In The Dark Studios with producer Matt McCllellan (Better Off, Capsize) and takes Being As An Ocean in a more hook-driven direction while still incorporating the band’s signature sound of sophisticated storytelling woven over lush, ambient soundscapes. The unique juxtaposition of Joel Quartuccio’s gritty, impassioned vocal work and Michael McGough’s gracefully soaring vocals creates a distinct blend that is both captivating and cathartic.

Reveals Quartuccio:

‘Dissolve’ has been about 3-4 months in the making, being written over one of our longest timelines, and we think it is one of our best yet. We, simply, have never had the time to make something this special before, and I think it really shows. Working with Matt McClellan, now for the third time, was a breeze. We click so well with him on a personal and musical level, we consider him a brother/family. Recording with him is always such a smooth and enjoyable experience, and I think that shines through, as well. It really aides the whole process, and I know it just wouldn’t be the same going to anyone else.”
