"Of all the Seattle sound knock-offs that have spawned in the rebel-against-pop 21st Century scene, New Oceans seem to hit the nail on the head. While most of the grunge wannabes are practicing their “Smells Like Teen Spirit” chord progressions, this trio has found a comfortable niche in the modern version of the abrasive Bleach era. The Chicago-based band’s debut EP, What’s The Use, captures this energy perfectly and sets the stage for more to come." - Riley Rowe Alternative Nation
