Johan is an Amsterdam quartet whose members have good haircuts and impeccable pop sensibilities. “Oceans” features swimming, crossing, crawling, a first verse built around “you,” and various other indications of true love, unrequited. Its infectious hooks and crooning might remind you of Matthew Sweet, Travis, or (lyrically) James Blunt, but Johan’s sensibilities are all their own…and they’re meant just for you.

  1. Ok, I just listened to this song about 5 times in a row. Catchy stuff. I'd guess a bit of early Fountains of Wayne and Ocean Colour Scene in there, as well. Awesome stuff.
