Annakye are a six-piece alternative rock band from Australia and Ocean is their latest single, released on 13/10/2023.
A grunge rock track that deals with the ups and downs of mental health in a relationship, it is a theme that many people can resonate with and with members consisting of Lukas and Cameron on vocals, Joel on drums, Richard on guitar, Carlos on bass and Ben on guitar, there are plenty of viewpoints that the song could be written from.
The song is the band’s third single, and the second I have reviewed, and I must say that this one does not disappoint.
With heavy guitars kicking off straight from the start, there is slight distortion that really gives the song is grungey vibe, and riffs fly out from the track in all directions, really giving the listener a treat for the ears.
The drumming is once again energetic and frenetic, and the meaty basslines are also prevalent. The only thing different on this track from the previous is the lack of electronic undertones on this but I think this gives the track a slight edge that really makes it stand out!
The vocals are, again, strong, and powerful, and the use of backups in much the same vein as the leads really creates a depth and dynamism to the song.
Another great and awesome track from these guys from Australia and one that I am sure will set them on the road to something big! Please check out Annakye and see for yourself just how good they really are!
