Ten years ago, the Pennsylvania-based veteran indie outfit the Ocean Blue released the now rare EP Waterworks. Well, rather, it was until recently rare, as the group announced that it would be re-releasing the EP in addition to several unreleased tracks, recorded around the same time as the EP. Now, Waterworks has the feel of a full-length release.
One of these unreleased cuts, long-lost potential single “Can’t Let Go”, has now received video treatment, a lovely collage comprised of various shades of blue. The band describes the video, directed by Peter Anderson, thusly: “The video features sculpture, architecture, shadows, light, and color. The sister sculpture on the cover of the band’s new release is located in Loring Park, Minneapolis.”
Waterworks will be out on September 23rd through Shelflife.
