Float into summertime with the lo-fi sounds of OcnSide’s debut single, “Taking Me Over.” An electrically vibing song about the intimately inescapable feelings of fresh love, the single calls to mind those heart-fluttering, stomach-sinking moments of a warm summer night. “Taking Me Over” is now available for download and streaming on digital music platforms worldwide.
Delicately diving into the dynamics of a summer romance, OcnSide concedes to the inevitably overwhelming emotions during those short-lived, yet intense intimacies. “The song is really just about love,” says Tony Aguiar. “That all-encompassing and powerful feeling that love gives. Once you find it, you never want to let go and you never want it to end. You just let it take you over.” A lovesick longing, “Taking Me Over” muses heartfelt, sincere imagery familiar to the wide-eyed days of youth and love; a wild, uninhibited emotion without the protection of guard walls or safety nets.
