‘Sevenfour’ displays Oceans Over Alderaan’s heavy-duty sound in an atmospheric implosive manner. The verses creep and lightly flutter into your ears with sweet euphoric bursts while the meaty chorus packs the bands hefty wall of sound in your head firmly. With a dreamy melancholic melody haunting through punchy drums, jabbing bass and crashing guitar -these guys create a wholly enthralling listening experience.There is a rushing sense of urgency through the track like a doomsday gloom nagging over the whimsical flutters of majesty – adding a rich and diversely contrasting atmosphere throughout the track. Its intense moments are climactic and adrenaline-filled as they blast through with mosh frenzy while the sweet flickering moments are delicate and soft with gentle guitar glimmers and breezy soundscapes. Perfectly crafted and crisply produced ‘Sevenfour’ is a sublime debut from Oceans Over Alderaan.
