Ocean City Defender


Ocean City Defender is the performing name of Ontario-based multi-instrumentalist K. Preston Merkley. Far from the typical sounds of a solo-performer, Ocean City Defender creates lush synthpop songs both on stage and record. The Golden Hour is Ocean City Defender’s debut EP. Recorded over the fall of 2011, The Golden Hour presents a tight focus on vocal melody and structure; the songs are built around warm synthesizers, hazy guitars, and supported by the steady pulse of drum machines.

Ocean City Defender is the performing name of Ontario-based multi-instrumentalist K. Preston Merkley. Far from the typical sounds of a solo-performer, Ocean City Defender creates lush synthpop songs both on stage and record. The Golden Hour is Ocean City Defender’s debut EP. Recorded over the fall of 2011, The Golden Hour presents a tight focus on vocal melody and structure; the songs are built around warm synthesizers, hazy guitars, and supported by the steady pulse of drum machines. Ocean City Defender’s influences range widely from the sounds of New Order and Tears for Fears, to M83 and Phoenix. Past performance experience includes a tour of Ontario, and providing support for fellow Canadian acts such as The Acorn, Wintersleep, The Most Serene Republic, Ohbijou, and Two Hours Traffic. With the release of The Golden Hour EP in January 2012, Ocean City Defender looks forward to playing often and everywhere. PRESS: “Uber talented electronic musician creating the sounds of entire bands and incorporating live instrumentation in the mix.” - Definitely Superior Art Gallery “The mix of shoegazing moodiness, clipped rhythms, and deep textures that makes Pinback such an intoxicant appears in similar form in Ocean City Defender and K.

Preston Merkley’s lulling tracks. Merkley’s main amendment is an earnest vocal sense: his nerd-rock tenor is more than just another instrument.” - CNet.com “…Ocean City Defender actually sounds unique when contrasted with a large majority of Thunder Bay’s bands. I was impressed by the dynamics of their set. At times the songs were brought to very humble, raw sounds only to segue into reverb-soaked guitar and crashing cymbals.” - Northern Rocks Magazine Read more on Last.fm.
