The Ocean Party to release Beauty Point 18/8 & tour!


The Ocean Party are pleased to announce the release of their seventh album Beauty Point. After their 2016 release Restless the band once again took to writing new material while touring and shaping the next full-length entrant to their oeuvre. Beauty Point arrives a year later and showcases the shifts in the lives and inspirations of The Ocean Party over that time.
Recorded in two parts Beauty Point began to be realized in a week of sessions at a house/studio in Stanwell Park N.S.W. The beautiful cliff side location was contrasted by the albums final sessions which took place in the bands inland hometown of Wagga Wagga. This time the location was on top of Beauty Point Drive – the towns central lookout. As an album created very much on-location the band found the two environments painting a dichotomy in their work from two very different perspectives of beauty.   Beauty Point balances moments of introspection with visceral expression as themes of identity, belonging and significance are brought into the light by the shared perspectives of the bands six songwriters.
