Recorded by Andrew Hehir at Soundpark and mixed by Sam Lowe, Acid Ocean is a potent 10-track serve of harmony-driven and brooding, fuzzed-out anthems, with cutting lyrical themes touching on social and economic injustices, invisibility as we age, and the numbing from modern life.

Simultaneously, the album leans into joy, celebrating the strange delights of everyday life, and finding simple pleasures in imperfect moments.

Moody Beaches have already shared three singles from Acid Ocean – the thunderous album icebreaker ‘Crowded World’, the inherently introspective portrait of self-doubt and criticism, ‘Counting Reasons’, and the subdued slow burner, ‘Golden Days’.
