ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
David Downs originally started New Oceans as a solo, electronic rock project after the closure of his former industrial band, Compliant. He wanted to create something that pulled from all of the different musical genres he grew up listening to, from RUN D.M.C. to Nine Inch Nails to Smashing Pumpkins. "A Safe Place" is meant as a culmination of all of those sounds. It's very different from the New Oceans grunge rock sound that comes later when the solo project eventually became a full-fledged band. Rather than removing this album from existence, David chose to keep it available as a piece of history, albeit far removed from what New Oceans is doing today.

Everything I Wanted!
This album sounds fresh and nostalgic at the same time! I haven't felt this way about a band since the 90's and I really think they are going places with this sound. The music is dense and interesting. The singer sounds completely honest- no vocal tricks and a little understated, which gives me the impression that he is singing straight from the heart. I definitely hear a NIN influence, but also some classic rock and some grunge alternative stuff. Awesome, awesome, awesome!
