Ocean Grove 'Bored' feat. Dune Rats
Well, isn’t this the collab you didn’t realise you needed? VIC Groovers Ocean Grove & Australia’s biggest stoners Dune Rats have partnered up for a Nirvana'esk sounding hit track entitled ‘Bored’.

'Ocean Grove' are a Melbourne based nu-metal outfit & 'Dune Rats' are a skate-punk band from Brisbane.

Ocean Grove have shared the final preview of their forthcoming third album, ‘Up In The Air Forever’ – a collaborative effort with Dune Rats titled ‘Bored’.

Channeling the angst they felt during the COVID-19 lockdowns of 2020 and ’21, ‘Bored’ combines the soaring, riff-driven Britpop sound of Ocean Grove’s recent works with Dune Rats’ signature energised, chant-heavy skate-punk.

The latter band shine in the song’s chorus, where they sing in tandem: “I’m bored right out of my brain / Nothing’s changed / Don’t waste your time on me.”

The track arrives alongside a video helmed by The AV Club, in which both bands – combined into a supergroup dubbed Ocean Rats – throw a wild party inside a bored child’s bedroom.

“This song is what you get when you place your two favourite bands into a room during what felt like a never-ending lockdown for two years and ask them to sit still,” Ocean Grove said of ‘Bored’ in a press statement.

“Writing this song was the perfect way to funnel our pent-up energy and irritation into something cathartic and positive – much like the entire [‘Up In The Air Forever’] album.”

Describing ‘Bored’ as an “Absolute thrasher”, the band went on to say that teaming Dune Rats was “Fun as f*ck”, and offered them “A timely reminder of just how important Oddworld music is to us, and that it will always be the silver bullet to the mundanity we feel exerted around us on a daily basis”.

Perfect election day music!

Ocean Grove became that band when you listen to their songs - you have a huge ass smile on your face all the way. I do enjoy it more than their head bang era songs. Why? It's different. There's enough heavy artists out there. This is different. This is special.
