Trevor O’Neill spearheads Possible Oceans, a synth-saturated project topped off by O’Neill’s voice, which has the ideal tone for it. In fact, on “Nothing’s Shocking” he brings a powerful force to the mic that is layered and dramatic, with a chorus that makes an impact in this darkly dancey post-punk song. The grim, downbeat lyrics (sung in a voice that reminds us of Father John Misty)continue amid the upbeat energy and 12/8 time signature of “Throw The Knife (Again),” where O’Neill deploys a rich fabric of sounds right up to the song’s forceful finale. Best tune of the bunch is “Dotted Lines” whose lyrics of self-loathing (“We’re heading for distaster”) are set to a high-energy synth fabric, with plenty of stabs and jabs.
