Jordan Burchel – “Every Ocean”


“Every Ocean” is a hooky rocker from Jordan Burchel, the artist’s third single release so far this year. Bursting guitars and playful synth tones kickstart a bustling intro, the suave vocals driving to bouncy bass-driven charm during the “you are wasting time,” line. The chorus — “with every ocean rising, every spirit sinking,” — exudes a poignant feeling of mounting anxiety in a world full of strife. “I’m just a little bit blue,” Burchel punctuates the chorus with. The bass-hopping verses and replay-inducing chorus are replay-enticing in their own rights, with the whole of “Every Ocean” being a striking success from the artist.

Burchel’s latest, “Empty House,” released today as well. Streaming below:

“Every Ocean” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2021’ Spotify playlist.
