THE OCEAN PARTY ANNOUNCE AUSTRALIAN TOUR

NEW ALBUM LIGHT WEIGHT OUT OCTOBER 9

 Light Weight is the bands first proper studio album. Recorded in their adopted home of Melbourne with John Lee (Lost Animal, Love of Diagrams) at the helm, the prolific young band explore their sound along avenues they had only touched on with earlier releases. As a result, Light Weight has a refined pop sound coloured with touches of horns and pedal steel.

 Inspired by 80s pop and post-punk, but firmly grounded in the current day, the six songwriters amalgamate their inspirations into a unique collage. From intimate and brooding to upbeat and quasi-psychedelic, Light Weight is a dynamic collection of songs crafted by the band over the last eight months.

 The band kick off a 21 date tour of Australia in Canberra on October 8 in Canberra and conclude in Launceston on November 15. They travel to all states and many regional cities, see full dates below.
