Being As An Ocean is an emotional post rock/hardcore band. The genre-bending newcomers meld sporadic hardcore, grand floating post-rock intricacies and powerful metallic chugging. Joey Quartuccio splits his time delivering poignant, personal spoken word, steady melodies, and guttural screams. Connor Denis is a monstrous kit commander; he controls the band’s chaotic volume and adds percussive flair to their expanding structure.
Newest release “How We Both Wondrously Perish” is a loose concept record about the depravity of mankind and efforts to combat it. A massive sensation in the age of tumblr, instagram and twitter has earned them a truly loyal global following. They’re thoughtful, compassionate and genuinely honest people. Being As An Ocean’s contemplative, sensational songwriting is an extension of the members themselves and the community they’ve created.
