We, The Oceanographers
We, the Oceanographers are a DIY lo-fi band from Dundalk,
Co. Louth. In keeping with their art music background,
the band began playing shows in cafes and art centres
while recording their debut record. The recording process
was inspired by the DIY punk ethic adopted by bands
like 'New Order' and 'The Velvet Underground' and was
produced, mixed and mastered by themselves in their
bedroom studio in their hometown Dundalk.
March 2015 saw them release their debut album to 7"
Vinyl along with playing in bigger venues and theaters.
July 2015 seen the band take on their first European
tour with dates in Sweden, Denmark, UK and home shows
in Ireland. December 2015 saw the release of a limited
run of a Christmas single, 'Christmas at the International
Space Station' on 7" vinyl, which sold out immediately
2016 saw a tour of Ireland and UK in Spring and in Autumn
2016 and some shows in Dublin and Dundalk to test out
new material for a follow up record due to be in finished
We, the Oceanographers have played Hard Working Class
Heroes 2015 and 2016, Ireland's most renowned music
festival. A short tour of USA and Canada is planned
for April 2017 as they will travel to play Canadian
Music Week in Toronto, representing Dundalk.
