The Ivy Walls “White Ocean”

The Ivy Walls’s “White Ocean” sits at the boundary between 1980s goth and new wave styles. On their latest single, the act is able to use vocals to both tell a story and establish further depth to the harmonies achieved. With a haunting beauty, the act is able to deftly weave in synths and vocals into a cohesive entity. Gradually rising and falling, White Ocean is an effort that is much deeper than the smoothed-out sound leads one to perceive. With a subtle stylistic shift at the 2:30 mark, The Ivy Walls are able to keep interest in White Ocean high until the act winds up things.
