Sounds of SXSW 2015 #4: Inner Oceans

It's getting to be that time of year again, y'all. That time in March when spring is tantalizingly close, and when bands from just about every corner of the earth (and the music press who loves them) gathers in Austin for SXSW. I know some folks think it's just a big industry schmooze-fest, but I still get a thrill out of checking out the (massive) list of bands and finding someone new to fall in smit with. The bands I'm profiling this year are bands that I would definitely seek out were I going to SXSW this year. If you're going to Austin, or even if you're not, give them a listen.

Sometimes I just want a band that leaves me a little bit breathless. It's no easy feat, but friends, Inner Oceans has just done it. The ghosts of 80s British synth flit about here, chasing the music into now with modernity and flair. Quite a listen, and, I imagine, one heck of a live experience.
