Peep It: Oceaán, “Need U”

Oceaán is a Manchester-based producer and singer who is truly a hidden gem of a talent. With varying production that goes from sluggish, ethereal R&B to arresting experimental pop, Oceaán sounds more like a wisened and polished musician than a newcomer on the music scene. The comparison’s been made before, but after hearing the striking singularity of his sound, it’s difficult to not be reminded of Jai Paul. The video for “Need U” is a simple but charming one, which follows two young souls as they lighten up an otherwise uninteresting environment with effortless charisma and some impassioned dancing.
