The Ocean Release “Devonian: Nascent” Live Video


The Ocean have shared a live performance of “Devonian: Nascent” from their upcoming live effort, “Phanerozoic Live“. That set will feature the two halves of the band’s “Phanerozoic” album series recorded live across separate performances.

The first half of the album was captured for a livestreamed set from Pier 2 in Bremen, Germany this past March. The second half of the album comes from a pre-recorded live set the group aired this past April for the ‘Roadburn Redux‘ virtual festival. Guitarist, programmer, etc. Robin Stapps commented:

“We wanted to give people two totally different experiences. In Bremen, we had the chance to record a proper Ocean live show, the way people know us. We played facing towards the front of the stage, to an invisible crowd, essentially to a huge empty room… but we knew people were watching, even if we didn’t see them. There was the same rush of adrenaline right before going on stage as you get before going on at any big open air festival… maybe with a little extra anxiety added, because knowing that so many people are watching you without being able to see them yourself was super weird.”
