the ocean blue

Playing since 1986, The Ocean Blue headlines a sold out show at The Satellite on Saturday, May 18. The Ocean Blue combines synthesizer based new wave hooks with bluesy saxophone solos and high tinsel guitars to produce a unique sound. Their sound can be described as a genre between new wave and grunge. They were influenced by new wave bands such as The Cure, Echo & The Bunnymen, U2, REM, New Order, and The Smiths. So be ready to hear some covers from renowned new wave bands done in a grunge-y/new wave way. Supporting The Ocean Blue are The Orange Peels, Willie Wisely, and Luxembourg Signal.
