South Carolina trio Oceans Orange seems to have all the elements in place––an appealing singer in Adi Nelson, a taut guitar-driven attack and catchy tunes that are built for explosive, live presentation. “We Are Kings” is our favorite; its “we’ll take on the world” rallying cry is a cinch to light up a club crowd. The staccatto “What You Gonna Do About It” and the urgent “Hello, Hello” are both not far behind in their sing-a-long, radio-friendly appeal. All the songs float in a nice, deep-space force-field of reverb that tingles with electricity. Oceans Orange doesn’t break any new ground, and they value vigor over virtuosity, but they more than make for it with their catchy, no-nonsense style.
