Charlie Barnes announces Oceanography, his second album for Superball Music, with no fixed abode. Ok, so that’s not strictly true; since the grandeur of his 2015 debut More Stately Mansions, the multi-instrumentalist has got married and moved to the Midlands – but the time he’s been able to spend there has been scarce. With the ink barely dry on his Superball contract, Barnes was asked to join arena-filling pop behemoths Bastille’s live line-up, thus swapping a life spent playing the backrooms and basements of the UK to some of the largest arenas and festival stages the world over.
In contrast to his previous LP – largely recorded in one place with producer Oceansize guitarist Steve Durose – Oceanography is a story of snatched moments after tour rehearsals, late nights spent in far flung studios from Wales to Virginia, ideas sent back and forth over email and put down in fits and starts while on the road. At points it seemed like it would never come together, so it’s some achievement that it not only matches the attention-grabbing maximalist prog pop of More Stately Mansions, but builds and expands on that record’s foundations.
