Exposure is our scrapbook of our favourite new bands. Today's exposure features Manchester based Soul, R&B producer, Oceaán.

  • Name: Oceaán
  • Location: Manchester, England
  • Genre: Soul, R’n’B, Electronic
  • For Fans of: James Blake
  • Website: Facebook

This 20 year old, classically trained chap from Manchester emerged briefly last year with ‘Haze’, but following this week’s surfacing of new track ‘Neéd U’ he’s gone and got the internet in a royal spin. Packed with soulful vocals and subtle beats, this R’n’B tinged track boasts melodic charm and warm production all the while referencing Oceaán’s influence of West African music along the way. With focus currently leaning towards the recording process (we’re told there is more new music on its way in the coming weeks) we’re hoping for some live dates in the not too distant future. Grab your free download of Neéd U below.
