Oceanography Premieres Black And White Video For “Drinking Water”

Written by  Published in Previews Sunday, 27 January 2013 15:09


Though Oceanography’s roots seem to be planted in gothic Americana, there is one thing founder Brian Kelly wants to make clear: this is not a folk outfit. He’s not just some guy singing and playing guitar. And after hearing tracks off the band’s newest EP, Parachutes of Plenty, this sentiment is made abundantly clear. Though guitar is the music’s driving force, it creates large, anthemic soundscapes while Kelly wails in his gravelly, Springsteen-esque voice.

Today, we are proud to premiere the visual accompaniment for the EP’s first single, “Drinking Water.” Filmed in black and white, the video begins with a shot of Kelly, and pulls back through his house and out into the street. It continues, through the neighborhood and into the city, on a quest to find Kelly’s love as he sings “Now we live in different towns / Drinking different drinking water.” And don’t worry, it’s a happy ending. The camera finds her at the end. Watch the video for “Drinking Water” below:

For as long as she can remember (and probably before then), Katrina has been a music addict. Raised attending concerts and listening to records with her father in Portland, Oregon, there was no question as to what the little audiophile would be when she grew up—a music journalist. And from the first day she wrote an album review for a blog in high school, she never deterred from that path. With a journalism degree from the University of Oregon under her belt, Katrina decided to pack up and move to where the action was. She now spends her days basking in the sun of the city of angels, keeping Amoeba Records in healthy business, and watching live music every chance she gets.
