He Is Me

Drowning Man Ocean Man (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This new single from He Is Me is stunning. It's also unsettling in a lot of ways. It's progressive music, and I'd even say that it fits under progressive rock, just in the dark modern variety.

Track by Track Review
Drowning Man Ocean Man

Dark and trippy, this grows gradually. It's very electronic and techno in nature. It's a really powerful piece of music. It has a lot in common with 80s music, but is more modern overall.  There is a good balance between mellower and more rocking stuff. There is a drop back to almost a false ending mid track that gives way to an extremely hard rocking techno movement. That section gets some space rock built into it, but it's also angry and driving.
