Oceans, the follow up to 2021’s Nocturnes, continues The Great Northern’s journey of sonic exploration through the incorporation of Analog synthesizers and organic instruments. Newly from Nocturnes, Oceans makes heavy use of modular synthesizers and samplers to further blur the lines between traditional instrumentation and electronic music, which is delivered in the warm, dark melodic style that has come to signify The Great Northern.
