hmv's Next Big Thing... #204 River Becomes Ocean

Who Are They?
River Becomes Ocean hail from Brighton and consist of singer/keyboard player Marvin McMahon, guitarists Danny Snow and Ben Bartup as well as drummer Dorian Neidhardt.
Their debut album A Motion Paralyzed will be with us in January next year and it boasts a guest appearance from Cancer Bats mainman Liam Cormier.

Why Should I Be Excited?
