Ulysses and the sea – Papooz
In an endless sea with you
Sailing under the rain
The only colour of my blues
Is made of dust and sand.
Waves – Naxatras
These three guys from Greece create an amazing mix of middle east influence, blues and psychedelic. There is something liberating about their songs. The more you listen, the more you’ll be drowned in their universe, their primary beats and shamanic vibes!
Ocean – John Butler
You don’t need to be driving along the coast to be amazed by this instrumental. The album Searching for Heritage was recorded and sold on cassette tapes while he was busking on the streets of Fremantle (1998, re-released 2012).
The Dead Sea – The Lumineers
Coastline – Hollow Coves
And we will sleep by the ocean
Our hearts will move with the tide
And we will wake in the morning
To see the sun, paint the sky.
Seaside – The Kooks
Palm Trees – Baxter Dury
Atlas Hands – Benjamin Francis Leftwich
Take me to the docks, there’s a ship without a name there
And it is sailing to the middle of the sea
The water there is deeper than anything you’ve ever seen
Jump right in and swim until you’re free
