Burnside Album Details
Ocean Blue, The, Ultramarine
The Ocean Blue‘s debut record (Sire Records) in 1989 achieved widespread acclaim and radio & MTV airplay. The band of four young high schoolers from Hershey, Pennsylvania went on to release two more well-received records for Sire, the atmospheric Cerulean and alt pop Beneath the Rhythm and Sound, and a fourth record for Mercury/PolyGram, See The Ocean Blue, before leaving the majors in the late 90s. The band had several independent releases in the 2000s and within the last several years began working on a new full length record, their first in over 10 years. That record, Ultramarine, is scheduled for release on Korda Records, a new Minneapolis cooperative label that the band helped launch in late 2012. Ultramarine is a spectacular return to form that recalls the band’s earliest work, and should appeal to fans old and new alike.
