about

Hush Hush is thrilled to present the debut album 'Rolling Days' from Ocean Hope, the Greek brother-sister duo of Angeliki and Serafim Tsotsonis.

'Rolling Days' serves as the proper follow-up to their breakthrough 2015 debut release 'Chamber Dreams,' a 4-track EP that introduced Ocean Hope’s romantic dream-pop sound in mysterious, shadowy, intimate fashion. For the past few years, the duo have stayed busy tinkering away in their home studios, recording ideas at Angeliki’s home in the small seaside town of Nerantza on the Corinthian Gulf, as well as at Serafim’s studio in the metropolitan of Athens. Steadily evolving and crafting their own unique style of dream-pop, 'Rolling Days' proudly embraces a confident shift away from the hushed aesthetic of their debut in favor of a more direct, bold, and magnetic sound.

Ocean Hope’s woozy analogue synths, beautifully ringing guitars, and Angeliki’s ethereal vocals all remain. Yet 'Rolling Days' brings a refreshing new energy over its 10-track widescreen run. Exploring new avenues for their seductive dream-pop foundations, songs are now filtered through propulsive rhythms, kaleidoscopic textures, psychedelic explorations, and a more urgent tone that shines both musically and lyrically. The energy now upfront and clearer, Ocean Hope’s music packs a brighter punch, their hooks now soaring towards new heights. It’s music the band describes as “nu-chamber pop.” And whether it’s best described as nu-chamber pop, swirling psych-pop, nostalgic dream-pop, escapist synth-pop, or fantastical electro-pop, it remains that 'Rolling Days' is a beautiful escape, and the sound of a band finding its strongest voice. We hope you enjoy a sonic deep dive into the glistening waters of Ocean Hope.

Track Name: Devotion
Bam Bar I say it, come back the reason to die, so damn wrong
Bam Bar I say it, come back the reason to die.

Bam Bar I say it, come back the reason to die, so damn wrong
Bam Bar I say it, come back the reason to die.

Well you said you’d come, I’ll be gone, I’ll die,
when you call my name I will be the same I’ll die, cause it’s your time, your time.
Well you said you’d come, I’ll be gone, I’ll die,
when you call my name I will be the same I’ll die.

So damn wrong, cruel, intense.
So damn wrong.

No matter what the say you cannot find the door (x3)
So damn wrong.
Track Name: Unlucky Girl
Is this remembering days I’m on the floor, remembering days
Is this remembering days I’m on the floor, remembering days

Stay, I’m on my knees, here we go, don’t walk away, don’t walk away.
Born inside my head, don’t understand, can’t understand 

Unlucky Girl, there’s no luck for you Girl
Unlucky Girl, there’s no luck for you Girl
Run away 

Unlucky Girl, there’s no luck for you Girl, don’t walk away
Unlucky Girl, born, there’s no luck for you Girl
Unlucky Girl, there’s no luck for you Girl, don’t walk away

Don’t be afraid little girl, don’t get scared, just be afraid, don’t be afraid.
Track Name: My Baby
You know what, I was with my babe the other day and I was like
‘’Babe come here’’, and she was like ‘’No, I don’t want you anymore’’.

My baby can wait as long as I want.
remember I am broke and never been sold,
no more to say I wish I had known
there’s no other way, I wish I had known.

My baby can wait no matter the day
there’s nowhere to play just come all the way
no matter what they say I’ll take you away
there’s no other way there’s no other way.

My baby can wait, like a friend, like a friend, like a friend
My baby can wait, like a friend, like a friend, like a friend
My baby can wait, like a friend, like a friend, like a friend
My baby can wait, like a friend, like a friend, like a friend

I said your friend, I am your friend
I said your friend, I am your friend
Track Name: Holy Bound
I’ll go wherever and you will follow
Mama will take you to the sky
Things getting better as you grow old
Like a Holy Bound

I’ll go around and round in circles
maybe will get down underground
‘cause things getting better as you grow old
Like a Holy Bound
I couldn’t let you, couldn’t let you die
Like a Holy Bound

All you say ‘’You drive me crazy’’
Kids are made of stars and thorns

All you say ‘’You drive me crazy’’
Kids are made of stars and thorns

Lonely baby I know I gotta go,
you drive me crazy
I am sorry dad I knew the rule
and sorry dad I knew the rule

I am sorry, I knew the rules
Track Name: Safe
I feel around you Safe
I feel around you Safe

I’ve been so wrong
I’ve been so wrong

I feel around you Safe
I feel around you Safe

Everything is everything
God I hope to find the sea
everything is everything
God I hope to find the season
everything is everything
God I hope to find the season

The sea is you
no world can describe what I feel for you

I feel around you Safe
the sea is made of you
hope you feel the same
what I feel for you
cause I felt so strong
and I know it will change from now on

I felt ya, I felt ya, I felt around your love is warm
I felt ya, I felt ya, I felt around your globe is warm
Track Name: Black Dress
You all dressed in black
you know it feels right
you own the rules
Driving all night long
you know the goal
it’s you my love

You all dressed in black
you dress wild, you dress wild
Cruising all night long
what can go wrong
with you my love

Somebody is making me feel sad, is making me
so sad, so sad
Somebody is making me feel sad, is making me
so sad, so sad

Baby come close, driving, closer
we are driving all alone
driving, closer

I am driving all alone
with a black dress (x3)
Track Name: Juliet
I never thought I never met you
I never thought I’d be so kind
never thought, I never met you
I never thought I’d be so kind

Am I cold?
Could I find my goal?

I never thought I never met you
I never thought I’d be so kind
never thought, I never met you
I never thought I’d be so kind

Am I cold?
Could I find my goal?

Romeo loved Juliet
Romeo please take my hand
Romeo can’t find my way
Is it true?
Never met you girl

People don’t change after all
I am gonna change after all
They say people don’t change after all
I don’t care I am gonna change after all

I don’t care.
They say..


You won’t have another desire
I couldn’t let you, couldn’t let you down (x3)
How could I, I couldn’t let you (x3)
Track Name: Where No Love Grows
Babe I’ll never know
the place where no love grows
And fame sometimes explodes
in your face where no love grows
my love grows

Babe I’ll never go
Mistake, how should I know?
How should I know?

Tam tarom
Isn’t too late, I gave you all my love
Tam tarom
Isn’t too late, I gave you all my love
Tam tarom
Tam tarom
Tam tarom
Isn’t too late, I gave you all my love
Tam tarom
Tam tarom
Tam tarom
Isn’t too late, I gave you all my love
Gave you all my love
Gave you all my love
Gave you all my love
Gave you all my love
Track Name: Americana Nights
I see a black horse
I see the sky
I know there’s something
there’s something in your eyes
I know the bad boys
they tell me beautiful lies
And I see demons
red, red like my wine

Bitches come, come from around the world
I am gonna stay, I am gonna stay for long
Don’t be lonely lonely lonely now
I’ve been looking for you tonight
Mama says I am just a little girl
I go my way, I just don’t know what they say
Babe I know silence isn’t gold

Americana, Americana girl
Americana, Americana girl

I like the sunsets
I like the stars
I see them baby
I see them in your eyes
I know the good girls
they tell beautiful lies
And I see demons
red red like my wine

Bitches come, come from around the world
I am gonna stay, I am gonna stay for long
Don’t be lonely lonely lonely now
I’ve been looking for you tonight
Mama says I am just a little girl
I go my way, I just don’t know what they say
Babe I know silence isn’t gold

Silence, Gold
Americana, Americana Girl
Silence, Gold
Americana, Americana Girl
Track Name: 100 Times
Come back tomorrow
I’ve lost myself in sorrow
Like a 100 times
I’ve lost myself
I’ve lost myself

Come back tomorrow
I’ve lost myself
I’ve lost myself in your sorrow

Go!

On the phone, on my knees
we were on a flight
without your kiss
On the floor
I found my goal
I found my goal
on that seat (x2)
