Defy The Ocean are a two-man musical project that seeks to push the envelope of alternative, guitar-centric music. Always bold, always moving forward, no two releases sound the same.

The duo comprise of Chris Theo and Marcos Economides, lifelong friends who came together in 2009 to begin writing music together for the first time. Together they create a sound that is capable of being crushing one moment and uplifting the next.

The first single Place Your Bets was released in November 2011, it told a tale of revenge.

The second single The Path was released a month later.

In September 2012 the debut EP Myopic was released to critical acclaim.

In late 2016 Marcos and Chris released Elderflower a 33 minute EP that explored the isolation, frustration and promise of life and dreams within the swirling technicolour of modern city life.

2018 saw the release of Monument To Her Exile (Chapter I), the first of an ambitious four chapter project, which celebrates the duo’s decade of songwriting with some of its most mature and nuanced songs to date.

Monument To Her Exile (Chapter II) releases in 2019!
