Melbourne’s To Octavia have returned with the groovy, heavy-hitting single “The Sound Of The Rain” and are accompanying the release with the announcement of their sophomore EP, ‘Somewhere in a World, Not of the Dream’ out Friday July 16! A shift in the line up and some time away to perfect their craft has culminated in the bands punchiest release to date. Produced, mixed and mastered by Chris Lalic (Windwaker), the track explores the turmoil involved in ending a co-dependent relationship and how hard it can be on both parties to try and move on. Colin Jeffs joined the team for the music video, filming directing and editing the visuals with added assistance by Jackson Bentley, Ty Van Haren and Ed Bellamy. The music clip takes place across an eclectic array of locations, from an empty arcade and a bowling alley to a room comprised of neon lights, winding vines and a bath tub filled with plastic balls – perfectly capturing the bands eccentric and diverse persona.
To Octavia is an Australian alternative metal group consisting of vocalist Merry Kirk-Holmes, guitarists Molly Congreve and Justin Keurntjes, and drummer Lucas Keurntjes. The band started in mid-2018 with the release of their debut single “After All”. Then in early 2019, they dropped their debut EP ‘Nocturnal’ which garnered attention from Alternative Press who commented: “the band prove that metalcore is alive and well.”
