Oceans is a crushingly heavy release that focuses on the reality of experiencing mental health issues. Where a lot of bands speak of mental health and overcoming issues, Isolate are exploring the inner reaches of their minds, portraying the depths of the illness through their music and visuals.
Vocalist, Jamie Dewhirst explains:
"Minds vast as an ocean is exactly the way I feel when I’m feeling low, lost in what feels like the most vast place you could imagine It's like a roller coaster of a song starting off very emotional lyric wise, almost a warning that though things are good right now there is always that one thing in the background gnawing in the back of your head ".
Jamie Tucker (drums) gives his perspective of the track:
"Oceans, to me, is our representation of the voice inside your head. Every instance of low self-worth, all the time spent overthinking and everything else that hides behind simple smiles. With the song I feel like the heavy parts and the "big sounding" melodic parts, represent the ups and downs of mental illness. Sometimes you're angry and sad, sometimes you're happy and other times you're just spaced out. I feel like Oceans is an accurate representation of this, I feel like with Oceans we captured this fluctuation in mood and the struggles that come with it.".
