Feature: “If I…” with We Are The Ocean’s Alfie Scully

Line up changes can be pretty pivotal in a band’s career, especially with vocalists. However, in some cases, it can be a blessing in disguise. I’m going to put it out there right now and saying that We Are The Ocean's latest move to a 4 piece is certainly a blessing in disguise. I've been playing new album 'Maybe Today, Maybe Tomorrow' a tonne and it’s easily one of the best of the year. Point is, take note of We Are The Ocean.

We caught up with Alfie Scully who provided us with answers involving Alt. Country, Bob Marley and an evil genius as he tackled our "If I…" feature. Read on for some more answers from the man himself.

If I could re-record one song it would be…
Alfie: The Eagles – Life In The Fast Lane.

If I could re-live one tour/show it would be…
Alfie: We did a tour last November supporting our friends The Blackout and in London we played The Roundhouse. I really love that venue so to play and be a part of such an awesome tour was great.
