Oceana Company

Oceana Company[1] was a Dutch indie rock band comprising Matthijs Herder (vocals/guitar/mellotron), Michiel Ferweda (guitar), Han Schilder (bass guitar) & Robert Koole (drums). Their music is notable for its melancholic and psychedelic overtones, and the use of authentic keyboard instruments, such as a mellotron. Their 2008 debut album 'For The Boatman' was produced by Marcel v/d Vondervoort of Astrosoniq and released by Spacejam Records/Suburban Records. Their song 'Trenchfever' reached number 1[2] in the Dutch Indiechart in May 2008. In 2009 the band was selected for the Dutch Popronde 2009.[3]
