Intimate Folk Duo Ocie Elliott Provides a Light in the Dark On Their New Single “Coming Home”
January 14, 2022 BY Nettwerk
2021 was a big year for Victoria B.C. indie-folk duo Ocie Elliott. With the release of their two EPs Slow Tide and A Place, they saw their audience expand even further as die-hard fans and curious newcomers resonated with their intimate, meditative songwriting style.
Today, they make their 2022 debut with the calming, angelic single “Coming Home.” Warm and reassuring, the duo serves as a guiding light in the dark, letting us know everything will be alright. From the unison chorus through the harmony-laden verses, Ocie Elliott continue to surprise with their subtle intricacies and thoughtful songwriting.
“Coming Home arose as a riff and chorus-line that Sierra was working along with,” reflects Jon Middleton. “At first, we felt that perhaps the main phrase of the chorus was too direct and to the point but as the song evolved, and the verse lyrics came, we realized that it fit perfectly with the overall nature of the tune. This song is about the deep, spiritual feeling of having another’s whole being fill one’s own.”
“Coming Home” is available now on all digital retailers (here).
