…stars will lead her through, THE OCEANS Young & High
by Walter Price
The recent single “Young & High” from Danish pop duo The Oceans [Linus Valdemar and Dan Joe] will transport the listener back to the post-post punk era when The Cure, Alphaville, and Modern Talking were finding their mainstream success.
The outfit’s Dan Joe shares, “It portrays several different young women we have met through life gathered in one woman. A free soul who is young and doesn’t worry about everything like us.” Exemplified brilliantly in rejuvenating lyrics such as, “She’s young / And on a high / The stars will lead her through the night / She’s young / With an urge to fly / She feels like she’ll never die”.
On this single, this Copenhagen twesome blends their impactful brand of airy pop and their indelible harmonies into a catchy dreamscape that’ll have you humming along tude sødt. And you can stream this nostalgic dreampop track now, at the GTC.
