With a new album set to release later this year titled Boys Never Cry, Saint Mars has released a re-worked version of their single, ‘Ocean Blues’ via Grá Mór Phonic Records. The single was produced by London producer Aubrey Whitfield. ‘Ocean Eyes’ is sung by lead singer and the youngest member of the band, Tryzdin.
Marc Darcange shares, “Childhood can be a difficult time…you are totally dependent on adults: if something turns bad at school, you can’t just resign like an adult would…you can hardly escape your condition and it’s often difficult to talk about it because the suffering can be so intense. The problem is often minimized by adults, who think it’s all just childish bickering. Wrong…Because for the most sensitive ones, it may even have fatal consequences. The most incredible thing is when I chose Tryzdin, I had no idea he was also being bullied at school. His parents finally took him out of public school in the United States because of this. I only learned about it later, but it made our approach even more meaningful.”
Saint Mars use their musical platform as activism against school bullying, and sing about the ripple effect that goes along with it. Tryzdin carries emotional lyrics with graceful yet strong vocal delivery.
