*The Following Press Release Was Issued By Ocean Flaws*
Our new single, “Hannah’s Ray Gun,” follows hot on the heels of our last single, “Touching Down” – as spun by Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6.
Ocean Flaws’ new single is Hannah’s Ray Gun.
Caught somewhere between the gunslinging rivalry of Rocky Raccoon and the futuristic dystopia of ‘73’s Westworld, the lyrics follow an
Evil outlaw, who saunters into a town’s local saloon,
Armed with a mysterious woman, Hannah’s, eponymous “Ray Gun.” After offering a Mexican standoff to the
Nearest thug by the bar, the owner of the ray gun is shot down in the street and the town celebrates the
Fall of the cowboy.
Like any spaghetti western tale, the Essex boys’ latest track, “Hannah’s Ray Gun,” is a nod to the underdog –
An affirmation of the inevitable triumph of good over evil.
Saddle up for the sexiest re-imagining of the Wild West since Matthew McConaughey put on a stetson in Magic Mike.

On the back of their debut single, “Deep Sea Dreaming” – released February 2020 – Ocean Flaws were named one of John Kennedy’s “Hot Ones,” on Radio X’s prestigious Xposure show. Following a string of sold-out shows on London’s live circuit, including a support slot with Oasis’ own Andy Bell, Ocean Flaws released their sophomore single – “Spirit Level” – in October 2020. The track garnered airplay from Radio X, BBC Introducing and even landed a spot on SiriusXM host, Eric Alper’s official Spotify playlist. The band’s third single, “Touching Down,” showcased a more introspective side to the group and secured airplay on BBC Radio 6 – as well as a place in the Unsigned Guide’s independent music blog. Ocean Flaws ornament anthemic hooks with the kind of instrumental texture popularised by bands like Television. Imagine The Cars grew amidst the humdrum of post-millennial Essex.
