Over time the poems transitioned into songs that truly represented what it meant to be Black, queer and non-binary just trying to navigate through an unforgiving world. Introverted and insightful, LovelyOcean’s music touches on mental health, fantasy and life while Black.
Buckle up for a journey into the mind of LovelyOcean as they explore a psychedelic reality in their new single «Trip». Colourful lyricism and imagery elevates the song into another dimension that LovelyOcean calls home.

The smooth, well written lyrics over a jazzy beat create the perfect vibe for anyone who is also looking to go on their own Trip.
LovelyOcean cites the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic as the main inspiration for the song. They explained that «when the pandemic started, I was looking for any means of escaping the very scary reality of what was now life. Psychedelics helped me to cope with my surroundings by seeing it in a new perspective. That was the driving motivation as to why I wrote the song».
