The Ocean, originary from Buenos Aires, Argentina, was born in 2010, though its begginings are further back in 2005 when Javier Tainta and Eduardo Capparelli, both playing in Underdog (www.myspace.com/underdogutopic) by that time, began composing new songs in a different way from what they were used to.
Their idea was to pick some new songs composed with an accoustic guitar and using mainly software as Reason or Cubase and a couple of pluggins, left behind the limitations inhertited from a traditional rock band. The first songs in those years were full of synth sounds, secuenced bass and drums and in most cases, the guitars were also a result of tweaking some synths.
Some years after that, Overthose, as it was originally named was always relegated to a second place by the main proyect that Underdog meant both muscicians. Underdog by that time was performins as opening acts for bands like Echo & the Bunnymen, Duran Duran, and also Queen + Paul Rodgers, all this gigs in Argentina.
+ After Underdog splitted up in 2009, Eduardo and Javier got back again to compose new music. One of the main concerns was the search of new people to put together a strong band with the sound freedom that they were looking and the magic of the human touch.
Almost three years after that time they consolidate the first line up that played some gigis in Buenos Aires.
After some more gigs, on November 2011, THE OCEAN entered the studio and after two months of sessions, the first EP named 1.0 ANSIA produced by Pol Goz, a well known musician and producer of the Buenos Aires Scene.
The influences vary from the british sounds of the nineties but also using some vintage synths to create a tense atmosphere mixing power, darkness and also sweetnes in some cases.
