Aussie garage-rock artist, Peter Bibby, is back with new music since the 2018 critically-acclaimed LP, Grand Champion, and this time around Bibby is backed by the garage-rockers in the Dog Act band. The new single, “Oceans,”. is a gritty, modern garage rocker, that feels so guitar-heavy, it will blow through your speakers. The song will be available digitally as well as on a limited edition 7″ vinyl with a B-side, “Quiver & Melt.”
“‘Oceans’ started out as a little sea shanty-esque poem scrawled on a piece of paper about going mad in the middle of the ocean. With the help of the Dog Act it soon morphed into a fairly raucous tune. I used vibrato on the guitars to give it a wobbly seasick kind of sound, and we had some mates join us in the studio to sing along and clink beers together in the final chorus to give it the vibe of a pack of people getting drunk on a boat. As far as I recall, it is the only song I have written about losing one’s mind out at sea,” muses Bibby of the track.
“I got to pretend I was a poorly dressed mermaid, a wharfy, a fisherman and a drowning guy as well as have a pretty damn good time doing it. I got a lot of seawater in my mouth for this video, but as we say in the game you have to suffer for the art. This is my second video featuring work overalls.”
