Ohio Post-Rock instrumentalists THE END OF THE OCEAN have just released their much anticipated sophomore album, -AIRE. TEOTO have held strong through a season of personal struggles, and used the distresses of that time period to further develop the gravitational sound that solidified followers. Spacious, mercurial, and heavy, -AIRE is an album that dictates moods. A large part of their sound is their gear, and they’ve been kind enough to give us a rundown of their equipment. Follow THE END OF THE OCEAN on Facebook here, Instagram here, YouTube here. And check out -AIRE on Spotify and iTunes.
