Concert of the polish band at Sziget Festival 2012.

Festival Sziget 2012, Scene QUART - Open

Ocean came into being in 2001 in Wroclaw. The band has played hundred of concerts and recorded five acclaimed studio albums. Singles like "Dzien Dobry", "Niekumacje", "Niecierpliwy dostaje mniej", "To wszystko czego chcesz" and"Czas by krzyczec", promoting the Fryderyk (local Grammy) -nominated album "Cztery", have all enjoyed significant airplay both on the radio and tv.

The band's tenth birthday coincided with the release of their new album called "Wojna Swin". This time Ocean have decided to make a radical stylistic turn and surprise their fans with insanely raw and intense guitar music. It caught the attention of Vance Powell - the industry's veteran and a Grammy winner, who worked in the studio with bands like The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Kings Of Leon and The Dead Weather. The album was recorded live, mixed by Powell and mastered by the legendary Richard Dodd (Kings Of Leon, Green Day, Sheryl Crow, Tom Petty, George Harrison), which elevated Ocean to a whole new artistic and technical level. Both the critics and fans agreed: the album was one of the most surprising releases that year, and the first single off the album topped the charts.
