Phantom Ocean - "Notice Me Senpai"

Boston's Phantom Ocean released their debut single at the end of April, so better late than never, right? According to their Bandcamp profile, they are "Preaching the blues, playing rock and roll." It's an apt description, but "Notice Me Senpai" has a strong indie rock fuzz going on. It's a catchy song from the duo, despite how insanely dark it gets pretty damn fast. That might be part of the appeal of the song: At times it's almost cutesy but couldn't possibly be since it's downright disturbing. It's a stripped down rock song without being even remotely minimal. It's the kind of debut song that will keep us intrigued about what Phantom Ocean does next... although nervously. And from a distance.

You can listen to "Notice Me Senpai" below. The song is available as a download via Bandcamp for the "name your price" option. For more on Phantom Ocean, be sure to check them out on Facebook.
