Locals Only Playlist: December 9th with Oceanwires

December 10, 2018


Supported by Rainier Beer

We got to premier some brand new music on Locals Only this week and we learned about the new band that made it.

In the first hour of the show we started things off with a pair of tracks from local bands playing Deck The Hall Ball (!!!!!) then we dove into some older classics from Beat Connection and Brite Futures.

In the second hour of the show Seattle band Oceanwires dropped by to talk about their new band. Oceanwire members include seasoned veterans of the Seattle music community Aaron Starkey (Gibraltar), David Einmo (Head Like A Kite, Daydream Vacation), Samantha Wilder (Princess) and Jeff Barrs (Long Dark Moon). A month ago Oceanwires released their debut single "Beware The Heartless" and it instantly went into rotation on Locals Only. 

We talked about what it was like for them to come together for their new band, how Oceanwires got started, and what those early days of practice were like. The band also shared their experience making their debut music video and what it was like to walk into the video rental place and announce "we don't know what we're doing." After all of that we finally premiered their new song "Pieces Of The Moon." You can get the debut album from Oceanwires when it is released on February 15th.

Oceanwires will be playing live at Barboza this Friday (12/14) with local bands Dust Moth and Razor Clam. I had never listened to either of these bands prior and instantly fell in love. You can count on hearing much more from them and Oceanwires on Locals Only in the future, but more importantly you should just see them all at Barboza this Friday night. It's an early show with doors at 7pm.
