TO OCTAVIA - Share New Single "The Sound Of The Rain" and Announce Highly Anticipated Sophomore EP

Melbourne's To Octavia have returned with the groovy, heavy-hitting single "The Sound Of The Rain" and are accompanying the release with the announcement of their sophomore EP, 'Somewhere in a World, Not of the Dream' out Friday, July 16!

A shift in the line-up and some time away to perfect their craft has culminated in the bands punchiest release to date. Produced, mixed and mastered by Chris Lalic (Windwaker), the track explores the turmoil involved in ending a co-dependent relationship and how hard it can be on both parties to try and move on.

Colin Jeffs joined the team for the music video, filming directing and editing the visuals with added assistance by Jackson Bentley, Ty Van Haren and Ed Bellamy. The music clip takes place across an eclectic array of locations, from an empty arcade and a bowling alley to a room comprised of neon lights, winding vines and a bathtub filled with plastic balls - perfectly capturing the bands eccentric and diverse persona. Watch here.

To Octavia have accompanied the brand new single with the announcement of their own headline show to celebrate the single release and to showcase their new sound. Inertia and The Last Martyr will play support for the band at Cherry Bar on Friday, June 4. Tickets here!

To Octavia is an Australian alternative metal group consisting of vocalist Merry Kirk-Holmes, guitarists Molly Congreve and Justin Keurntjes, and drummer Lucas Keurntjes. The band started in mid-2018 with the release of their debut single "After All". Then in early 2019, they dropped their debut EP ‘Nocturnal’ which garnered attention from Alternative Press who commented: "the band prove that metalcore is alive and well."

"They Tell Me They're With Me" followed shortly after in early 2020 and earned the band a national support slot alongside The Brave, Sleep Talk and Bad/Love in March. The rest of 2020 was well spent working towards their sophomore EP that takes To Octavia's melodic sound and builds on it tenfold.

To Octavia recently wrapped up a couple of support shows with Thornhill and Bloom, allowing a glimpse into what's to come. Now the band are ready and waiting in the wings to show Melbourne what they've been missing.

"The Sound Of The Rain" is out now and available on all streaming platforms. 'Somewhere in a World, Not of the Dream' will be available Friday July 16!
