The wait is over, as To Octavia today unleash their sophomore EP 'Somewhere In A World, Not Of The Dream', streaming everywhere now!
The journey to the much anticipated launch of the quartets second extended offering has been a rewarding one. With Unearthed and triple j rotation for first single "The Sound Of The Rain", television spins on Friday Night Football for both "The Sound Of The Rain" and the groove filled second single, "Sleep", as well as a sold out single launch, to be rescheduled pending restrictions, and high praise from media across the globe.
Produced mixed and mastered by Chris Lalic (Windwaker, The Last Martyr, Days Like These), 'Somewhere In A World, Not Of The Dream' plays on the light and the dark with soaring highs and manic lows throughout.
Hysteria Mag hosted an interview and video stream with the release of third single "COCO MOJO" where the band commented on their new direction with 'Somewhere In A World, Not Of The Dream': "We have rock, pop and electronic influences. Genres limit new bands. We did anything we wanted on this EP. If it sounded good, we stuck it in. We wanted our genre to be To Octavia."
So far, reviews have been glowing for To Octavia's return:
‘Uge slices of riffage, even bigger drums and otherworldly synths anchor the EP pushing and pulling the listener between a state of chaos and calm."
"An incredibly solid release from a band that are definitely on their way to the meteoric rise they deserve."
Wall Of Sound
"I need you to know how huge To Octavia's tracks have been sounding lately. It's like a mountain sprung up in your backyard. Huge stuff with hulking riffs and even bigger hooks."
Dave Ruby Howe, triple j Unearthed
"With their otherworldly take on melodic metalcore, Melbourne rockers To Octavia have emerged from a barrage of lockdowns armed with a monstrous new lease on life"
"[To Octavia] put on display the fact that diverse influences breed the best kind of metalcore."
To Octavia announced a headline show to celebrate their massive release and to showcase their new sound. The show has been postponed to the 27th of Nov, w/ The Last Martyr & The Motion Below.
2020 was well spent working towards their sophomore EP that takes To Octavia's melodic sound and builds on it tenfold. 'Somewhere in a World, Not of the Dream' is out now and available everywhere!
