Jauz and HALIENE team up to deliver on a dreamy downtempo track “Oceans & Galaxies” for Monster cat.
While streaming on Twitch at the start of the pandemic, the two became friends and that’s how the song was born. Fittingly, the production offers HALIENE’s atmospheric vocals, accompanied by a trance-like melody and oceanic bass. The lyrics illustrate a love story that goes beyond distance.
I’ve been a HALIENE fan for so long and wanted to write a song with her forever. We hadn’t met before this year, and in 2020 it was because we both streamed weekly on Twitch. We wrote the song together on one of my streams and the way it came together was so effortless. “Oceans and Galaxies” still feels like a JAUZ song, but fans look forward to hearing it on a live show, not because they want to headbang but because they want to sing along to the choir.
But wait, there’s more …
The release of the song will be accompanied by an Earth Day livestream on April 22nd, hosted by Jauz and HALIENE on Monstercat’s Twitch channel. During the event, Jauz and HALIENE will premier an acoustic performance of “Oceans & Galaxies” in addition to live art and nature conservation education.
Dr. Austin Gallagher, Chief Executive & Lead Scientist at Beneath The Waves, said, “We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with Jauz and HALIENE on this release. Collaboration is a core value for our team and includes innovative ways to inspire the general public around the oceans. Music inspires us in all aspects of our work. We also see our science and storytelling very much as an art form and hope that through this collaboration we can show people that everyone can have a positive impact on our planet, our sharks and our ocean. True conservation requires that we all work together and how we can better connect with an audience than through music. “
