The Ocean Floor is mostly Lane Barrington (ex-Church/Hosannas), Shannon Rose Steele (Typhoon), Holland Andrews (Like A Villain, AU) and William Wienert (Boors). The sound has evolved in a zigzagish yet foward like maze to come to what you will hear now from The Ocean Floor. Now if you go see The Ocean Floor play you will hear violin, clarinet, upright bass, electric piano, moog synthesizer, and acoustic and electric drums working together to create the sound of "Falling Star Castle." These sounds are trying to rearrange a polychromatic tree canopy into a paper airplane.
