I Want Poetry presents: "Ocean," a dreamy electronic indie song.


I Want Poetry has just unveiled a new single named “Ocean.” The track is going to be featured on the duo's upcoming album, “Solace + Light,” which is an extraordinary example of the high degree of variety the pair is eager to bring to the table.

The track begins with a dreamy introduction and a lush drone that embraces the whole arrangement. The main beat is initially very dreamy and lo-fi, but it later opens into a beautifully cinematic arrangement. The vocals are very powerful and emotional, yet somewhat hypnotic and oneiric, reminiscent of artists as diverse as Daughter, Phoebe Bridgers, Dead Rituals, or Clairo, only to mention a few. The song’s verses have a sparse, immersive quality. However, the choruses enable the song to reach higher with amazing dynamics. The synth parts have a new-wave revival flavor, tipping the hat off to artists such as Chvrches or Odesza. Comparisons aside, I Want Poetry is a very personable duo, and the sound of “Ocean” proves their distinctive approach.

Ultimately, “Ocean” by I Want Poetry comes highly recommended to people who enjoy electronic indie pop as well as vocals that are emotional and deep while retaining a catchy component. It is not always easy to make all these different elements stand out, but I Want Poetry managed to succeed in the task. “Ocean” is a great introduction to the sound of the band and a fantastic “first taste” of what the audience can expect from the group’s upcoming studio album, “Solace + Light.” This album is a milestone for the band, as it showcases its ability to continually explore music and expand its sonic horizon.
