Metalcore quintet Artificial Oceans talks about single “Commonplace”!

Progressive metalcore quintet Artificial Oceans continues the positive gradation of its release schedule with the launch of “Commonplace”!

Artificial Oceans

A ruthless, hard-hitting song that presents some serious groove and bouncy riffs and is sure to get the crowd on their feet.

Talking about the quintessence and the core of “Commonplace”, Artificial Oceans comments:

This is a song about a relationship where you find yourself going around in circles. And the other person consistently takes advantage of you. It makes you feel like you’re caught in this never ending cycle that pushes you down every time you feel like you come up for air. Until you feel like that kind of treatment becomes a normal occurence and you come to accept it as the norm.

For the video, we wanted to capture a crowd’s reaction to a high energy and aggressive song. With how angry and pent up the song’s lyrics are, it’s hard for the performance of the song to not reflect it. And the crowd always seems to mirror that same energy. It’s a song that we feel like we connect with people live. And we wanted to reflect that in the video.

About Valentine Klipfel

As a huge fan of pop-punk, easycore and punk-rock music since forever, I officially started my career in 2011 by offering press relations and social media services to underground bands and labels. In parallel, I also worked for other magazines and webzines, which allowed me to understand what a media wants to receive! I've finally created my own webzine in 2015. Since then, I've continued in this direction in order to help bands and labels develop their visibility and notoriety worldwide.
