StarAV releases a new genre-bending song to take us on a journey through dreams and life…

“ocean / wastebag” is the song released by the collaboration between StarAV as the vocalist/songwriter and Faithloss being the producer.

Both artists are from Australia and met in the online SoundCloud hyperpop community…they always felt like having a unique and distinct style that perhaps didn’t fit individually, but together, collaboration has brought them a long way, producing solid, artistic and commercial hits.

Their latest “ocean / wastebag” has many genres under its ambient coating…

You have a bit of rock, hip-hop, indie and folk elements…

…it starts with the ambient elements, reverberated vocals, and oceanbeds of pads…

…then the hip-hop and percussive elements jump in…the beats drive the track and add so much to the overall experience.

The ambient elements fill the air and the soul…

…it adds a lot also of storytelling elements…and “ocean / wastebag” is like reading a short story…

The story talks about finding a place in the world and making connections…sometimes it works, other times…it doesn’t…and that’s really life…

Dynamically, how this song came to be was Faithloss creating instrumentals and sending them over to StarAV to write lyrics and melodies for them…they truly leveraged technology to do some unique art here.

…the song actually also has a surprise second half…it kind of fades into an ethereal version of itself…taking us from the bottom of the ocean and into the vast space…with different drum beats and percussive elements and a different instrumentation giving us a completely different experience…

It’s like 2 songs put together…and they were originally like this…but this is how the artists are also discussing the dichotomy between ambition and the inability to connect to the present.

We can’t wait to experience the next story of this collaboration between these two surreal artists.

Wishing them all the best in life…

Cheers!
