CD Review: The Ocean's Eyes Find "The Way"

From the U.K. comes alternative rockers The Ocean's Eyes with a new EP entitled "Lost Along The Way." There sound is pure punk that would fit in with the likes of Blink 182, Face To Face and NOFX. Their new album was released at the end of October through I Am Might Records.

The EP begins with "Keep Me A Secret" that shows us the energy and passion this band has for their music. Their sound never strays from this winning punk formula of great song-writing combined with an up-tempo, modern punk sound. The songs "Wake Up" and "Room of Red" just solidify why The Ocean's Eyes need to get the attention of modern alternative rock radio. The EP closes with "The Best Stories Are Lived" which shows are darker side to their song-writing, but they just perfectly execute their punk rock sound.

The Ocean's Eyes just wrapped up a mini-headlining tour in the UK and more dates have just been added for December. Visit the band's Facebook page (facebook.com/theoceanseyes) for tour dates and song samples from the new album.
