Oceans Over Airplanes - "A-Game" (audio) (premiere)

The Indiana band return with an infectious new alt-rock track.

Indiana post-hardcore band Oceans Over Airplanes are set to release their new EP Young Nights on 27 November, but as a good little teaser you can hear the lively new track "A-Game" below.

"The premise behind 'A-Game' was to create and set the scene for a singles night on the town," the band says. "Going out with your friends with no other intentions. However the moment occurs when two people lock eyes for the first time. Two strangers who encounter that initial and undeniable attraction. Both people knowing that it is probably the wrong time, that they don’t want a relationship, that this is not what they intended to be looking for, however it is happening and the attraction is too much for either person to not explore. There is that feeling that it only gets complicated from here, that most likely it will never be better than tonight. However both decide to continue because the feeling is real, pure and honest. They lose all sense of time and inhibitions and are truly lost in the moment."

Over the Rainbow: An Interview With Herb Alpert

Music legend Herb Alpert discusses his new album, Over the Rainbow, maintaining his artistic drive, and his place in music history. "If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
