The Ocean Cure Release New Single “Huntress” Off EP – RE: Discover

THE OCEAN CURE
RELEASE NEW SINGLE “HUNTRESS” OFF NEW EP RE: DISCOVER OUT 6/14

Based in Toronto, Canada, The Ocean Cure, consisting of members Pauline Taylor (Vocals), Casius Wray-Muto (Bass/Unclean-Vocals), Mike Di Monte (Guitar/Vocals), and Nicola Sudano (Drums/Programming), offer a vast sound of post-hardcore and metalcore sensibilities, with a dash of prog and a sprinkle of pop. Last month, they announced their brand new EP, RE: Discover, set for release on June 14, 2019. The 5-track EP was produced and mixed by Sam Guiana, and is a reinvention of what The Ocean Cure is all about.  The EP confronts a variety of themes like anxiety, the fear of not being in control of oneself, being a caretaker of the planet, the ability to persevere against all odds, and moments of regeneration. 

Today, they are thrilled to share another single off the EP, “Huntress” which was inspired by the ancient myth of Pandora’s Box. The character opens the box and inadvertently unleashes terrifying monsters into the world. Lead singer Pauline’s interpretation is that Pandora was subsequently sent down to earth and ordered to track down and trap the monsters that she had unleashed, thus she became a monster hunter. This song loosely touches on sleep paralysis and the fear of not being in control, similar to the themes of anxiety seen throughout the EP, which ties into the realities created within dreams.

Earlier the band released their single, “Structures,” which represents the band as a whole both musically and lyrically. On the track, the band explore the incorporation of electronic elements to the sound with an undeniably catchy chorus.

More Information on The Ocean Cure
Based in Toronto, Canada, The Ocean Cure offer a vast sound of post-hardcore and metalcore sensibilities, with a dash of prog and a sprinkle of pop. Since forming in 2014, members Pauline Taylor (Vocals), Casius Wray-Muto (Bass/Unclean-Vocals), Mike Di Monte (Guitar/Vocals), and Nicola Sudano (Drums/Programming) have been fine-tuning their sound and lyrical content. Stemming from the common theme of the ocean, The Ocean Cure draws comparisons to the calm before the storm and the symbolic impact of crashing waves. They use this ideology within their lyrics to draw unique comparisons to how life can feel like an ocean. Wray-Muto expands, “Music has always been a sort of medicine for me, so I think it just makes sense that our name is, The Ocean Cure.” When writing lyrical content, Taylor finds herself using a lot of imagery to paint a picture with words so each song will offer a descriptive story. She continues, “A definite recurring theme in my writing is nature and ethereal themes. Nature is so overwhelmingly powerful and has a way of making you feel so small.”

After forming, the band unleashed their debut single “Take Cover” which featured Chris Cosentino, who also produced, engineered and mixed the single. The single amassed over 11,000 views on Youtube and guided them to begin vigorously touring throughout Eastern Canada. The band began sharing the stage with artists like I Set My Friends on Fire, Ice Nine Kills, Hawthorne Heights, Palisades, Secrets, Picturesque, and Oh Sleeper to name a few. In 2015, they were invited to perform at The Vans Warped Tour Toronto date, and continued playing festivals like Canadian Music Week, Indie Week, KOI Fest, and Montebello Rockfest. In 2016, the band launched their debut EP, Daydreamer, produced, mixed and mastered by Damian Birdsey. The 6-track record included singles, “Too Close For Comfort,” “I’ll Survive” and “Waiting For You” which has amassed over 14,000 views on YouTube thus far.

Following the release of Daydreamer, The Ocean Cure is back with a brand new EP, RE: Discover, set for release on June 14, 2019. The 5-track EP was produced and mixed by Sam Guiana, and is a reinvention of what The Ocean Cure is all about. Casius elaborates, “There was a point after Daydreamer where we were unsure of what direction we really wanted to take the band. It took countless late nights, dozens of demos, edits, re-edits, and so much more to make sure that we created the best album that we possibly could. We worked hard to make a record that shows our progression as musicians. Every song has its own unique message.” Off the forthcoming EP, the band launched, “Structures,” a song that represents the band as a whole both musically and lyrically. On the track, the band explored the incorporation of electronic elements to the sound with an undeniably catchy chorus. The EP confronts a variety of themes like anxiety, the fear of not being in control of oneself, being a caretaker of the planet, the ability to persevere against all odds, and moments of regeneration.
