Ocean Alley have captivated audiences around the country with their infectious melody lines and memorable blend of psychedelic-surf-rock, amassing over 40 million streams online and more than 600,000 monthly Spotify listeners. Their acclaimed second album ‘Chiaroscuro’ debuted at #15 on the ARIA Chart, and was awarded the coveted triple j Feature Album, with the station proclaiming “Ocean Alley have surfed their way to ‘Next Big Thing’ status.”
Hailing from the Northern Beaches of Sydney, the band – Baden Donegal (vocals), Angus Goodwin (guitar), Nic Blom (bass), Lach Galbraith (keys/vocals), Mitch Galbraith (guitar) and Tom O’Brien (drums) have taken their independent brand of sun-soaked psychedelic rock to the world in 2018.
Off the back of their sold out 7-date Australian tour in April & May 2018 alongside playing all dates on Groovin The Moo, Ocean Alley have received widespread praise for their mesmerising live performances, X-Press claiming “their live set was seamless, echoing their recorded music and enhanced by their sensual stage presence”, Savage Thrills declaring “they can’t seem to set a foot wrong” and The Music suggesting that it “…would be wise to follow these boys into the wild and windy surf”.
The band have just completed headline tours of North America and Europe, as well as a second sold out tour of Australia in October. They are set to tour North America in November supporting Tash Sultana, before bringing in 2019 at Falls Festival in Australia.
