Ocie Elliot – Be Around
Ocie Elliott is the musical duo Jon Middleton and Sierra Lundyfrom Victoria, B.C., Canada. The two have come a long way in a short time since a chance encounter in a Salt Spring Island café led to a spark, collaboration, and their ultimate partnership in music and beyond. That was hardly two years ago, and Ocie has been busy, Releasing their debut album and after that, the EP ‘In That Room’, which released on March 20th.
With gentle acoustic chords layered over gorgeously complementary voices, which intertwine in gentle harmonies, Sierra and Jon’s beautifully written songs explore, of all things, love and connection. The duo has been aptly described by one reviewer as “…the aural equivalent of indigo painted skies and the first summer stars.”
‘Be Around’ is no different to this description. The song is a heartwarming love song about being around the people you care for. In easy and difficult times. The duo sings together as beautifully as always with love seeping out of your speakers from this couple.
On May 1st Amsterdam-based multi-instrumentalist / producer / singer Saux returns with his warm distinct alt-pop style on his new track ‘Night Is All There Is’. A dreamy track about an endless night.
After the release of her debut EP ‘Diamonds & Liquid Gold’ on April 17th. Jaguar Jonze releaed a video for her track ‘Rising Sun’. “If Jaguar Jonze was a TV show, this would be the theme song.”
Today the Belgian band Tin Fingers release their new song ‘Red Socks’. This uttermost happy track is an ode to simple, harmless and true love! Smile along while listening to this song.
