Micah Erenberg - Somewhere Beyond the Ocean

Colin Medley, director of Somewhere Beyond the Ocean, sometimes reflects on the notion that  it can often feel like we are stuck - whether that is working a job you hate or living in a country where it is cold most of the year, life can unexpectedly put you in situations that you feel you can’t get out of. To counter this feeling, Medley offers up the idea that there is always an escape “whether it's escaping into your imagination or ditching work to go tobogganing with all your closest buddies”.

The video begins with Micah walking to work, a toboggan in hand, encountering the same daily minutiae he experiences every day. He is a server at a local diner, serving customer after customer. The video cuts to him leaving work and heading to the park to meet friends to toboggan. We see them enjoying themselves, being carefree, having fun and putting the boredom of their day behind them. The video closes with him back in the diner, cleaning up, a reflection of how fleeting these moments of escape can be, whether they’re real or just a figment of our imagination.

The Beaches Bring "Blame Brett" to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

The Toronto quartet brought their viral single into their late night TV debut.

Following the viral success of "Blame Brett" in 2023, The Beaches have made their late night TV debut, performing their naming-and-blaming single on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Though the Toronto band has been together for a decade, winning a 2018 Juno for Breakthrough Artist following their debut album, last yearmarked a watershed moment for the quartet. They traded their heavier rock sound for sleek new wave guitar tones and took back control of their career, deciding to release their new album, Blame My Ex, independently. (They co-wrote the album with Canadian artist and songwriter Lowell, who also has a credit on Beyoncé's newest hit.)
