Victoria, B.C. duo Ocie Elliott – Jon Middleton and Sierra Lundy – have released their anticipated new EP, Slow Tide, comprised of five tracks of dusty folk painted in broad strokes of acoustic instrumentation and lyrical eloquence meant for nights under the stars, long drives with no destination, and quiet moments of reprieve. Listen to Slow Tide HERE.
Along with the EP, the pair also share an official video for EP track “Now You Don’t,” where nostalgic lyrics conjure wistful memories amidst a fragile back backdrop.
Ocie Elliott came to life in 2017 on EP. In between sharing stages with everyone from Mason Jennings and Sons Of The East to Kim Churchill and Joseph, they launched a series of covers on YouTube shot in the backseat of their Honda CRV, performing intimate renditions of Elliott Smith, Gillian Welch, John Prine, and Simon & Garfunkel, to name a few. On the heels of 2019’s We Fall In, the single “Run To You” appeared in a slew of television shows, including Grey’s Anatomy, Batwoman, Legacies and more.
2020 proved to be their most prolific year yet kickstarted by the In That Room EP, followed by the critically acclaimed Tracks EP. At the top of the summer and in the midst of the Global Pandemic, Sierra and Jon retreated to an oceanside bungalow in Ladysmith on Vancouver Island for three days. The peace around them melted into their songwriting. By achieving balance together on Slow Tide, Ocie Elliott might just help listeners do the same.
