Published Jun 09, 2015Hailing from Brampton, ON, post-rock emo kids New Design are gearing up to release their debut LP Far from Home later this summer, but before it lands, Exclaim! has got the exclusive premiere of their newest single "I've Never Seen the Ocean."
The new tune hears the four-piece teaming up with Moneen's Kenny Bridges, who recorded, mixed and produced the track. He captures what the band the describe as their signature sound, featuring "atmospheric sonic landscapes" and "memorable vocal melodies" on the three-minute tune.
Pounding percussion, glimmering guitars and dramatic pauses provide the vehicle for emotional vocal delivery and lyrics that express a yearning for unseen sights.
Far from Home will be getting a physical release on June 26, and the band will be marking the occasion with an album release show at Toronto's Sneaky Dee's that same night. A digital release will follow, but for now, get an early taste of the record by listening to "I've Never Seen the Ocean" in the player below.
