The Ocean Blue
Between Something and Nothing
Ballerina out of Control
"Kings and Queens / Knaves and Thieves" the new album from THE OCEAN BLUE out now...
The Ocean Blue's debut record on the famed Sire Records label in 1989 seemed to summarize the best of the closing musical decade. The band of four teenagers from Hershey, Pennsylvania quickly achieved widespread acclaim and radio & MTV airplay, with top 10 Modern Rock/College Radio hits like Between Something and Nothing and Drifting, Falling. They followed their debut release with the subtle and atmospheric Cerulean, which included perhaps their most beloved song, Ballerina Out of Control, and followed that with their highest charting pop album Beneath the Rhythm and Sound and the single Sublime, featuring a video of the band in the sublime landscape of Iceland. After band's fourth record for Mercury/PolyGram, See The Ocean Blue, the band left the majors and did several independent releases in the 2000s. In 2013, after much anticipation, the band released their first full length record in over 10 years, Ultramarine, on Korda Records, a Minneapolis-based label cooperative label the band helped launch that same year. The record was a welcome return for fans of the band and a younger generation of fans, and garnered widespread praise as one of their very best albums.
Now the band has returned with their signature atmospheric sound on the beautifully powerful "Kings and Queens / Knaves and Thieves". Hear the album on all the major streaming platforms and see the band on tour in 2019-2020!
