The Video - The Ocean Blue's "Sad Night, Where Is Morning?"

When will you shine to my darkened soul, where there's no light to grow anything good

Pennsylvania indie-pop band the Ocean Blue released their self-titled debut album in 1989, fresh out of high school. After producing five full-length albums and recording consistently for 15 years, the band went on hiatus after the release of their 2004 EP, Waterworks

But a few months back, they were back, with a great new album, Ultramarine.

The slice of gorgeous power-pop that is “Sad Night, Where Is Morning?” was the addictively melodic lead single for the album.

Like much of their earlier stuff, a lot of Echo & the Bunnymen and House of Love influences in there.

An amalgam of ultra-pop aesthetic with dreamily melodic (though equally melancholic) emotive vocals, wrapped round a sparse mantra-like lyric.

All in all, delicious!

Crisp black and white shadow play sets the mood in the arty, athmospheric video for “Sad Night, Where Is Morning?” 

Man, that's a creepy fucking doll!

The beautifully shot film was directed by musician /visual artist, Christian Erickson.
