An undeniable fan favourite, 'Confidence' has surpassed 13 million streams since it was released last February.
Fresh following the announcement, the band exclaimed “This is surreal. Thank you to our family, friends and all the team. To triple j and most importantly every single person that voted. Nothing is possible without your support.”
Ocean Alley – Baden Donegal (vocals), Angus Goodwin (guitar), Nic Blom (bass), Lach Galbraith (keys/vocals), Mitch Galbraith (guitar) and Tom O’Brien (drums) – have continued to engross listeners with their soulful, dreamy tones and summer vibes. Their acclaimed second album Chiaroscuro was awarded the coveted triple j Feature Album in 2018 and drew praise across the board, with Pilerats proclaiming "it finds a band at the absolute peak of their powers" and LifeWIthoutAndy declaring “Ocean Alley’s biggest days are still ahead of them.”
