Record Label: Beggars Banquet
Oceansize’s stunning 2003 debut Effloresce has been remastered to be reissued on colored vinyl. The album’s twelve tracks mix shimmering, atmospheric soundscapes, with insistent drums and their trademark hypnotic, three-guitar attack, which catapulted them to the forefront of the so-called “new prog revolution” of the 2000s. Brooding, dark, spacey, empowering, sprawling and at times angelic, Oceansize were a band who always stretched themselves, never resting on their laurels. They influenced a generation of forward thinking rock bands and the new vinyl reissue of Effloresce ensures their legacy will continue and inspire a brand new audience.
