New Video: Peter Bibby’s Dog – Oceans

Australia’s Peter Bibby is back with his first new music since his 2018 LP Grand Champion, and this time he’s buoyed by the disorderly Dog Act band. The new offering, entitled Oceans, is a ferocious slice of modern garage rock that sounds like it’s cutting through your stereo speakers with a shiv.

Oceans started out as a little sea shanty-esque poem scrawled on a piece of paper about going mad in the middle of the ocean. With the help of the Dog Act it soon morphed into a fairly raucous tune. I used vibrato on the guitars to give it a wobbly seasick kind of sound, and we had some mates join us in the studio to sing along and clink beers together in the final chorus to give it the vibe of a pack of people getting drunk on a boat. As far as I recall, it is the only song I have written about losing one’s mind out at sea.

Watch the video – a dizzying, and psychedelic seasick fever dream
