Being As An Ocean – The Hardest Part Is Forgetting Those You Swore You Would Never Forget (Track of the Day, April 15th)
After looking into some new releases lately, we thought it’s time to bring back a classic for today’s Track of the Day. Five years and two albums ago, California’s melodic hardcore quintet Being As An Ocean released “The Hardest Part Is Forgetting Those You Swore You Would Never Forget”. (Try saying that three times in a row really fast.)
The track immediately proved itself as a fan favorite, which it still is up to this day. THE fan favorite to be exact, with by far the most Spotify streams out of the band’s entire repertoire. And it claimed that spot for a reason, as it is a hybrid of everything Being As An Ocean are particularly good at: the harsh yet amazing contrast between heavy unclean and soft clean vocals, the perfect instrumentals to go along with it and form refined transitions and of course a bunch of heartbreaking lyrics, in this case about love and loss.
So if you’ve never heard of this song or maybe just forgotten about it for a while, you should definitely refresh your memory by giving “The Hardest Part…” a listen below!
