7 Hey Ocean Songs That You Must Add to Your Playlist ...

If you’re looking for some fun, spunky, and upbeat music to add to your playlist, then some Hey Ocean songs would be perfect for you. Hey Ocean is an alternative pop band comprised of Ashleigh Ball, David Beckingham, and David Vertesi. What I love about this band is that all of their songs are so different and catchy. And best of all – they’re Canadian! Here are seven Hey Ocean songs that you must add to your playlist.

1 Make a New Dance up

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

Out of all the Hey Ocean songs from this list, Make a New Dance Up is probably the most memorable. It’s a very catchy, upbeat song. Like the title suggests, this song will make you want to make a new dance up. I would classify this song as a hype song, mainly because it’s positive, uplifting, and the music inspires you to be active. Make a New Dance Up is a great song to work out to. The next time you’re looking for an upbeat, inspirational song, I would definitely choose this one.

2 I Am a Heart

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

This is another upbeat and dynamic number by Hey Ocean. This song is all about having a wild heart that can’t be contained. It’s about being free, having thick skin, and having the courage to do what you want and love who you want. In terms of instrumentation, Hey Ocean combines a variety of instruments. Electric guitar, bass, drums, and flute are just a few that can be heard within this tune. Hey Ocean's talent is showcased really well with I Am a Heart. I highly recommend giving this song a listen.

3 Big Blue Wave

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

An infectious beat is what starts off this song. Big Blue Wave is the type of song that makes you want to sing at the top of your lungs. And just like the lyrics suggest, you’ll probably sing until you have no voice. With electric and acoustic guitar, keyboard, bass, and drums, this song is full of energy and contains beautiful melodies. I can definitely picture this song being played during a flash mob, or being belted out by a loved one from a nearby balcony. After all, the lyrics of this song suggest that love is full of ups and downs. No one is perfect, and relationships can be hard, but true love always prevails. I would definitely recommend this song if you’re looking for a positive, motivational song about love.

4 A Song about California

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

Don’t let the title mislead you – this song isn’t entirely about the sunny state of California. Sure, the song references Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood Hill, Santa Monica, and Venice Beach, but A Song About California is actually about a romantic interest towards a guy. The lyrics of this song are so interesting and clever. I especially like the lyric which suggests that writing a song about California is «something everybody’s got to do before they’re dead.» I recommend looking up the lyrics to this song if you have the chance. A Song About California is a pop song infused with jazz, making it a great tune to jam out to. I guarantee you will not be disappointed if you download this song to your playlist.

5 Change

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

First of all, the music video for this song is awesome. Who doesn’t love zombies? If you haven’t watched the music video in the link above, I would highly recommend it. It holds an important message and has such a cute ending. Hey Ocean has created another catchy tune with this song. With its upbeat tempo and memorable lyrics, it’s hard not to love this song. Change is probably one of my absolute favourite songs by Hey Ocean. Give it a chance and have a listen. I hope you enjoy it as well.

6 If I Were a Ship

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

There’s one word that comes to mind when I think of this song: sweet. This song is cute, lovely, and modest. While the lyrics of this song are simple, they are quite striking. What I love most about If I Were a Ship is that the song is full of vulnerability. It’s soft, and it’s full of passion. Compared to the other Hey Ocean songs from this list, If I Were a Ship is probably the mellowest. However, it still holds a great kick to it. It’s catchy, and it still makes me want to get up and dance. I think this song is beautifully put together, and I highly recommend adding it to your playlist.

7 Too Soon

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

Last, but certainly not least, is Too Soon. Just like A Song About California, Too Soon is from Hey Ocean’s second album, called It’s Easier to be Somebody Else. Though Too Soon is not Hey Ocean’s most recent single, it’s still a killer tune. This song is great because the lyrics are deep and rather ambiguous, which makes it easy for listeners to interpret the song however they want. For me, I think the song is about saying I love you too soon in a relationship. What do you think?

These are just a few Hey Ocean songs that you should look into and consider adding to your playlist. What is your favourite song from this list? Want more information about Hey Ocean? Check out their official website here: loveheyocean.com
