Lost Ocean—featuring Christopher Short (drums), Skyler Johnson (piano, organs, ambience), Jeff Gray (vocals, guitar) and Bret Black (bass)—is a piano-driven pop/rock band from Bakersfield, California. After catching the attention of Credential Recordings, the band debuted with its Night to Life EP this past August. And now, their self-titled full-length album is set to hit stores February 20. In a recent album review, Indoor Fireworks’ Jesse “The Vicar” described Lost Ocean’s music as “a fluid display of pop charm and fantastic musicianship, with terrific attention to detail…”

Paul: How did you guys come to be a band?
Christopher: We grew up in Bakersfield and all attended the same church. Bret Black, Sky Johnson and I played in a group before Lost Ocean that was produced by our now singer/guitarist Jeff Gray. We lost our singer and knew exactly who we wanted. We have now been playing together for three years.

Paul: What are five words that describe your music?
Christopher: Intriguing, precise, unique, artistic, death-defying

Paul: If you absolutely had to compare yourselves to any bands, who would they be?
Christopher: The Beatles and Mew

Paul: Where did you record your new record, Lost Ocean, and who was the producer?
Christopher: We recorded our self-titled full length at The Castle [near Nashville,] Tennessee, and we were produced by Nathan Dantzler (Tree63, Kids in the Way).

Paul: What would be your ultimate opening slot on a tour?
Christopher: U2

Upstart EMI imprint Credential Recordings continues its impressive hitting streak with the debut full-length release of Bakersfield, California-based alternative pop/rock act Lost Ocean. Soaring melodies, intimately evocative vocals and dominant piano and keyboard elements glide atop an intricate and quite powerful rhythm section and guitar churn to create a sound that is modern, classic, romantic and intense all at the same time.

Recorded in an actual castle outside of Nashville, Tennessee, the listener can almost hear the echoing hallways and melancholic ambience of ancient stone throughout the tracks. Epic early alternative romantics like Simple Minds, A-ha, The Choir and The Ocean Blue echo down from one angle, while the more recent strains of Keane come from another. Skyler Johnson handles piano, keyboards and “ambience” while Christopher Short (drums) and Bret Black (bass) work out the beats with mechanical accuracy and an often Mullen/Clayton/Eno sensibility. But in spite of the dominance of the keys, front man Jeff Gray does a lot more than just strum his guitar and sing. His wide ranging tone palette and unique guitar philosophy add wonderful muscle beneath the always pretty skin of Lost Ocean’s vibe.

Woven throughout all the lilt and grace are lyrics that are poetic and ethereal, yet still accessible and clearly purposeful. The result, while not exactly ground-breaking, is more than impressive. Lost Ocean brings back an important element of rock music: the cascading arc of classic melody and romantic sweep that beg you to just relax and float away on its waves. Fantastic stuff.
