NYC Psych-Americana Band Lovechild Drop New Music Video For "Ocean Hill"

NYC Psych-Americana Band Lovechild Drop New Music Video For "Ocean Hill"

Back in September, New York rock 'n roll band Lovechild dropped "Northbound Train," a woozy soothing lullaby. Now, they're back with "Ocean Hill" and a memory-making music video to match.

Like most of Lovechild's work, "Ocean Hill" proves to be a breezy psychedelic romp tinged with folk elements. The track opens with some dizzying, warbling distortion before lead vocalist Leo Liebeskind's distinct vocals come in singing, "Well I went to see my girl down in Ocean Hill / And the daffodils were dead upon a windowsill" above tropical string plucks and steady percussion. The song starts to pick up as Leo's delivery gets quicker, more untamed, and suddenly a sunny, electric psych-folk arrangement powers on beneath howling harmonies and old-school vocal riffs. 

The music video for "Ocean Hill" is equally as charming; footage from videographer Jack Tumen tracks the talent behind Lovechild as the five-piece band moseys along Coney Island, riding bikes, attempting pull-ups, and punching each other: you know, all the random bonding activities we all do with our buddies when we find ourselves strolling the boardwalk on gorgeous chilly days. Close-up shots of the band and landscape b-roll are interspersed with the action footage, the final product beaming as a fuzzy, feel-good collection of Lovechild's band camaraderie: the same harmony that translates into their music, a blend of mouth-watering psychedelia and warm folk.
