Oceans Before Me Share Single / Video 'Carry On The Walk'

Annabel Kean / Friday 1st October, 2021 1:31PM

Out today, the soulful new offering from Oceans Before Me 'Carry On The Walk' is the second single from their forthcoming debut album Daughters of the Dawn, although it was the very last song to be added to the final track listing. Written across seas and lockdowns, Oceans Before Me artists La Coco, KALALA, MARINA and Vox Dawn built up the track layer by layer, recording vocals on their phones and recruiting producer Hamish Townsend to finesse the beat. Bookending 'Carry On The Walk' are the voices of Tigilau Ness, Melani Anae and Etta Gillon — Polynesian Vāhine telling their stories of the Dawn Raids. La Coco, KALALA, MARINA and Vox Dawn take turns on verses exploring their roles to play as Daughters of the Dawn, and "the inevitable existence to take on the baton, to hold fast and carry on in the same strength, resilience and perseverance as they did". Co-initiator of the Dawn Raid apology petition Benji Timu directed and edited his own and Conan Fitzpatrick's footage into the patchwork, documentary-style visuals for the new track. Watch and listen to this collaboration from all four of the Oceans Before Me crew, and keep an ear out for the full release of Daughters of the Dawn next month...

'Daughters of the Dawn' is out Friday November 19th.
