Oceanator is the solo endeavor of Brooklyn based musician Elise Okusami. Okusami released her debut EP in February 2017. The EP, recorded at her brother Mike Okusami’s Maryland studio, plays to Okusami’s folk-pop and rock aesthetics. Stand out tracks include ‘Nowhere Nothing’ and ‘Afternoon’ both of which have received praise from publications such as Pitchfork, Impose Magazine, and Heartbreaking Bravery.

“Okusami layers her lovesickness and loneliness over an unexpected backdrop of bubbly 1980s synthpop and crisp percussion.” - Pitchfork

“In two songs, Oceanator proves to be a project with a surprising amount of range, depth, understanding, and versatility.” - Heartbreaking Bravery

“‘Nowhere Nothing’ exhibits a comfort found in the cold, a reconciliation with, and justification for a feeling of solitude” - Impose Magazine
