DEON will launch his second album 'Oceans', on 10th July 2015 (Friday), at The Substation. The event begins at 7:30p.m, with local songbird Theodora opening the night. This is a free-standing event, and free alcohol will be available to audiences (limited quantity, first-come-first-served basis). This event is supported by Klipsch.
The 'Oceans' Physical CD is printed in a special CD Book format. All pre-ordered items can be picked up at the venue on the event day.
'Oceans’ is filled with songs that mark a specific season of the year, and harkens back to certain memories of love, loss, and growth. Inspired by the theme of circles and cycles, the protagonist of ‘Oceans’ takes shape the form of a Lion, who gains courage with each turn of the season, and in its finality, a sense of renewal, quiet and calm.
Eschewing the straightforward sounds on debut album ‘Antiphobic’, DEON’s pop-rock sensibilities find new emotional clarity with ‘Oceans’, awash with lush post-rock soundscapes and ambient electronic elements. Mostly conceived in Reykjavík, Toronto, and Liverpool, the songs recall the skittering folktronica of Ásgeir, while channelling the warm, soulful melodies of his favourite songstresses in Brooke Fraser, and Rachael Yamagata.
