Reclining on the shores of the Baltic Sea we find the beautiful capital of Estonia, Tallinn, hometown to five-piece instrumental act Ocean Districts (Martin Lepalaan – Guitars, Taavi Liinak – Guitars, Siim Eenma - Guitar, Tanel Kõnd – Bass, Stanley Love – Drums).
Informed by the picturesque beauty of their hometown and the surrounding country, as well as the bleak Estonian history marked by continuous invasions and oppression, Ocean Districts deliver a heavy, progressive and sludgy post-rock sound. With their 2014 debut album Expeditions the Estonian quartet built a sound that is both weighty and vigorous, oftentimes bathing in elegant beauty but also packing some hard punches. The success of this album also led to shows with God is An Astronaut, Sólstafir, Alcest and Dirge. Ocean Districts’ latest EP Doomtowns constitutes a leap forward for the band, further expanding upon the sound of their debut album.
Doomtowns considers the nuclear tests conducted by the Soviet Union and the United States during the Cold War-era, taking a more solemn and political approach. Over the second half of the 20th century, both superpowers detonated nuclear bombs in remote locations in order to test their effectiveness. The album name referring to the fake towns built by the US Army to simulate real urban environments. Recommended for listeners of heavy post-rock and post-metal, listeners who have a penchant for progressive rock and post-hardcore can also find a lot to like about Doomtowns.
