TRACK REVIEW: Motherland – Ocean Drive | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed

Never judge a book by its cover, because then you might see a song called Ocean Drive and skip over it as some kind of feel-good summer tune. The latest release (in quite an impressively long line of releases) from Motherland is still pretty feel-good depending on your outlook, but it takes a surprising turn into romantic declarations of affection. Surprising, because this track is decidedly guitar-rockier than most love songs.

Ocean Drive “chronicles love and its unconditional commitment; love isn’t just an emotion, it’s a promise.” It’s a bold and unwavering statement, but if your lassie/laddie/enbie likes riff-heavy solos and finds sweet-talking to be a little too cloying but you want to send them a message, then you’re onto a winner.
