U Me and the Ocean
WOUNDEDSPiRiT a 5 piece indie/pop/rock band from the UK announce their return with a mix of synth/guitar driven hooks for their fans with the the release of their 2nd album U Me and the Ocean. The album is a follow up to the 2018 award winning debut album FOREVERyoung.
U Me and The Ocean was recorded in Cornwall in the UK and Produced by Gareth Young who has worked with Tom Meighan, Sam Ryder, Ronan Keating, Sugarbabes and 3 Daft Monkeys and Mastered by Pete Maher whose work includes U2, The Rolling Stones and Liam Gallagher and mixed by Ross Rothero-Bourge who mixes for The Uk Drum Show and Zildjian.
U Me and the Ocean is composed of 9 tracks and mixes Synth/guitar driven sounds which are the driving force behind the Album Title track U Me and The Ocean to a more pop/country/gospel feel for the track Two sisters of Mine written about Lead Singer Jason Kelly's Daughters. The album also introduces on backing vocals the vocal talents of Bethany Anniemae on her recording debut.
WOUNDEDSPiRiT have taken their recording experience of FOREVERyoung and introduced a more 80s synth/guitar driven drive to the album," we worked hard in our home studio on sounds and had a direction we wanted to go before we started recording in Cornwall, the demos we recorded made the album come alive before we really had begun" says Jason Kelly.
And while each song varies in tone, "they are all original in a rich mixture of diversity, love, sadness and hope, we wanted to show our feelings on this album, dig deeper within ourselves through the expression of music and words" says Jason Kelly. The new album includes the epic Another Day touching on loved ones who have passed on, to the duet Playcold with Bethany Anniemae that looks at the relationship of 2 lovers fighting to keep their relationship alive.
The track OUTSiDE from the album has been featured in the Peter Kosminsky thriller The Undeclared War on channel 4 starring Simon Pegg and Oscar winner Mark Rylance.
Elton McTaggart, Drummer/songwriter of WOUNDEDSPiRiT, "we have brought a collection of songs that encapsulates WOUNDEDSPiRiT, this album will feed our fans further and will win us more fans through the albums diversity"
