Watch Ocean Grove cut some seriously weird shapes in new ‘Intimate Alien’ vid

Melbourne’s Ocean Grove are gearing up for a pretty great 2017. They’re locked in to play a run of dates with The Amity Affliction, they’re on the bill for UNIFY, and they’ve just announced that their debut album – The Rhapsody Tapes – is going to land February 3.

The Rhapsody Tapes explores a fascination with a warped perception of reality,” says frontman Luke Holmes of the album, which was recorded and produced entirely in drummer Sam Bassal’s bedroom.

“It tells parallel stories that come in waves… and parts of the album are written from the view of a child standing on the edge, looking out into a hyperreality in search of something.”

To whet everyone’s appetite, last week they dropped the first cut off the record, ‘Intimate Alien’. Now they’ve gone one further and unveiled the batshit insane video to go along with it, featuring member Running Touch twisting his way through town, doused in gold paint.
