“What started as writing a song for a girl grew into something bigger and better through the nurturing environment of a genuine passion for music.”
“Alas, The Ocean brings back the sound of late 60s folk music (think Simon and Garfunkel, Nick Drake, Donovan), but instead of cashing in on nostalgia, the group fills their sound with a convincing personality, along the lines of acts such as Ben Howard, Damien Rice, The Tallest Man On Earth.”
“ALAS,THE OCEAN is engraved in picturesque storytelling, which slowly develops track after track. The sound production remains loose, boomy and very live-sounding. Verses and choruses seem to unfold casually in the presence of the listener. All the while throughout, Allen Rapadas continues to develop his simple and enchanting guitar rhythms and colourful lyrics. Almost like a giant spider he weaves his web, enticing the listener into entrapment.”
