Melbourne's The Ocean Party celebrate the release of their seventh album Beauty Point with a national tour that takes in Kyneton on Saturday 9th September at Major Tom's.
On the album, Beauty Point:
After their 2016 release, Restless the band once again took to writing new material while touring and shaping the next full-length entrant to their oeuvre. Beauty Point arrives a year later and showcases the shifts in the lives and inspirations of The Ocean Party over that time.
Recorded in two parts, Beauty Point began to be realised in a week of sessions at a house/studio in Stanwell Park, N.S.W. The beautiful cliffside location was contrasted by the album's final sessions; these took place in the bands inland hometown of Wagga Wagga on top of Beauty Point Drive - the town's central lookout. As an album created very much on-location the band found the two environments painting a dichotomy in their work from two very different perspectives of beauty.
Beauty Point balances moments of introspection with visceral expression as themes of identity, belonging and significance are brought into the light by the shared perspectives of the band's six songwriters.
