Reviews One Hundred Year Ocean Where Were You While We Were Getting High?

One Hundred Year Ocean

Where Were You While We Were Getting High?

Where Were You While We Were Getting High?, the latest release from the seven-member Connecticut indie-emo band One Hundred Year Ocean, is a four-track collection of massive, breathtaking sonic concoctions.

The EP starts with the slow, slightly depressing “Hospital Town”. “Soco Amaretto Bud Light Lime” immediately follows with a faster tempo and brighter feel. “Apples” preserves the happy vibe with upbeat drums, subtle trumpets, and heavy guitars (it clocks in at just over a minute). The album rides into the sunset with the mellow and cute “Magnetic Curses”.

Although the songs on Where Were You While We Were Getting High? don’t follow the typical pop structure, One Hundred Year Ocean’s luscious instrumentation, raw vocals, and summery production make them a promising band on the indie-emo scene.
