We, the Oceanographers are a DIY indie lo-fi band from Dundalk, Co. Louth. In keeping with their art music background the band began playing shows in cafes and art centers while recording their debut record. The recording process was inspired by the DIY punk ethic adopted by bands like 'New Order' and 'The Velvet Underground' and was produced, mixed and mastered by themselves in their bedroom studio in their hometown Dundalk.
March 2015 saw them release their debut album to 7" Vinyl. The record release coincided with European tour dates in Ireland, UK, Sweden & Denmark. December 2015 saw the release of a limited run of a Christmas single, 'Christmas at the International Space Station' on 7" vinyl, which sold out immediately on release.
We, the Oceanographers have showcased at Hard Working Class Heroes 2015 & 2016 in Dublin, Focus Wales 2017 in Wrexham, Canadian Music Week 2017 in Toronto and recorded with Canadian producer David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals, Holy Fuck) for a release scheduled for 2017.
We, the Oceanographers are Conal McIntyre, Joseph Edwards and Sean Bradley.
