Being As An Ocean return with their fifth studio album, PROXY: An A.N.I.M.O. Story, due for release on September 13, 2019. The Alpine, California collective embrace their art on their terms with a 14-track effort that enthralls the listener from beginning to end. The album draws the listener in as it becomes quickly clear that they are part of an epic adventure. The record is a concept album, aided by the recent videos for “Play Pretend” and the previously released “Alone.”
Highlights of the collection include the aforementioned “Play Pretend” and the hopeful “Find Our Way” which is abundantly earnest while at the same time being memorable as lead singer Joel Quartuccio proclaims “I know you feel anxious, no need to be nervous, you’re safe with me. Some monsters are harder to vanquish, together we’ll manage to make it through. We’ll find our way.” In this way, the hope that has defined the music of Being As An Ocean to this point in their career is maintained on PROXY: An A.N.I.M.O. Story and flourishes beautifully.
After diligently traversing Europe on tour earlier in 2019 and preparing to return there in November, Being As An Ocean will celebrate the release of PROXY: An A.N.I.M.O Story with a North American tour from September 19 – October 17 with the support of De’Wayne Jackson and Holding Absence.
