“The cars break. Everything goes slow motion. There’s disaster and fire,” foretells Elise Okusami, describing her cinematic vision of the end of the world. Apocalypse is a subject Brooklyn polymath Oceanator mined for her debut full-length Things I Never Said, and on her new cataclysmic yet awesome offering Nothing’s Ever Fine, she focuses on the people who keep on living: the already-shredding project’s heaviest collection yet.
Weaving an even greater web of support throughout Nothing’s Ever Fine, Okusami shared producing roles with her brother and longtime bandmate Mike Okusami as well as her friend Bartees Strange, while pulling in pals Jeff Rosenstock for saxophone and gang vocals from friends in Groupie, Bad Moves, Maneka, The Sonder Bombs, Long Neck, Late Bloomer and Alright.
On Nothing’s Ever Fine, the world might end. But it might not. And while we wait to find out, Oceanator delivers a revitalising smack of sound and energy, helping us to remember that even if things don’t turn out fine, we can make our time here worth it.
