A British rock band with a very loyal fan base!

Ocean Colour Scene (OCS) is an English rock band from Birmingham that stems from the same ’90s British indie/rock/pop era as Blur, Oasis, Radiohead, and The Verve.

The band had the most success with their 1996 album Moseley Shoals. This release contained the band’s three biggest hits The Riverboat Song, The Day We Caught The Train, and You’ve Got It Bad.

Spytunes recorded one of Ocean Colour Scene’s B-sides, Robin Hood, a song that has become a classic among their loyal fan base. Songs reaching the masses through underground demand like this are not as rare as you may first think.

I’m Yours by Jason Mraz had a similar venture. Everywhere Mraz went, people knew the lyrics by heart. Mraz capitalized on this with his 2008 release, but OCS never released Robin Hood as a single.

It’s worth noting how songs that reach legendary status like this always have a very simple harmonic and melodic structure. The message is clear, the chords are simple. The lyrics are direct and all rhythmical patterns are always easy to follow.

After the huge success of the ’96 Moseley Shoals, OCS released a new album every two years between 1997 and 2007.

Their two latest releases came in 2010 with Saturday and 2013’s Painting.
