Melbourne based artist Thomas Lee launches his debut music project Oceans - a fusion of shoegaze and ambient electronic soundscapes. 2020 saw listeners get their first glimpse of Oceans with him featuring on Atalein’s single ‘Touch’. Tom has also hit the ground running for 2021 preparing for the release of his debut EP and playing lead guitar for Melbourne shoegaze band Grazer at their sold out shows.
Coming from a multi-instrumentalist background, Tom has explored the various timbres of guitar, piano and programmed drum machines in his formative years. It wasn't until discovering the vast catalogue of 90s shoegaze and ambient electronica that he considered finding his own musical voice and began his journey into songwriting. This sparked his interest into collecting vintage analogue synthesizers and boutique guitar pedals to create the unique sound that is Oceans.
From there on he spent countless nights layering sonic textures, which are the hallmark of his upcoming EP, creating nostalgic soundscapes with a modern twist. Expect to hear dreamy pads overlaid with roaring guitars and whispery vocal harmonies singing ballads of love, loss and letting go of the past. Tom has now teamed up with a band of like minded shoegaze lovers and is preparing to take Oceans to the stage and perform at venues all over Melbourne as well as creating new material.
