Forming deep in the winter of 2019, Oceaneers are a four-piece who succeed in merging both the classic and the contemporary.
Starting life when drummer David Stead joined John, Simon and Russ in a back garage in the Avenues area of Hull, it didn’t take long before the four of them hunkered down in a rehearsal room near the river and began to put together the album Light of The Whalebone.
A cinematic blend of Americana, psychedelia, dark 60s European pop and ethereal folk, the album features ex-Beautiful South drummer David Stead, guest vocals from ex-Primal Scream and A Certain Ratio singer Denise Johnson and was produced by Magazine and Visage keyboardist Dave Formula at The Sweet Factory in Lincolnshire.
