Ocean Alley Drop Single / Video 'Touch Back Down'

Annabel Kean / Wednesday 17th November, 2021 2:22PM

Psych-rock Sydney-siders Ocean Alley return with a sunny outlook on their first new single since Lonely Diamond, the band's third studio album that shot up the Australia and Aotearoa charts when it dropped in June last year. Fresh track 'Touch Back Down' emerged from band mates Baden Donegal, Angus Goodwin, Lach Galbraith, Mitch Galbraith, Nic Blom and Tom O'Brien making the conscious decision to take a more positive approach when writing their fourth album, with guitarist Mitch Galbraith explaining "After the craziness of the past two years, we wanted to be less serious and write songs that will get people moving rather than thinking". The accompanying clip to mellow groover 'Touch Back Down' takes us on a surreal Ocean Alley road trip, starring lead vocalist Donegal absolutely sodden from existing in his own underwater world, while his bandmates carry on around him oblivious and beaming in warm sepia tones. Catch the six Ocean Alley boys on their biggest Aotearoa tour to date next May, when they hit Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin with stunner surf-rock duo Hockey Dad in tow...
