The fine women you see below jamming on their American opus Shiny Gun are the band Open Ocean. All with southern roots and Brooklyn homes, they also all happen to be independent jewelry designers. Let me introduce to you: Dirty Librarian Chains on the keys, SFK on guitar and main vocals, Cheek-ie on drums. Basil Whatley grooves on bass and is also from the south, but does not make jewelry, and thus not in the shot. Though he is a badass graphic designer. I crashed their rehearsal the other night at Sound City in Williamsburg, and caught a short vid of the waves of cool funk and post-punk disco rising in the intimate practice space. Pardon any rockiness, it was making my body bounce.
Experience the sounds of the Open Ocean at Glasslands in Williamsburg on Thursday, 3/22.
And rock their chains up ahead.
