Gryffin dives into euphoria on new single ‘Oceans’ with Kid Joi

The melodic house icon returns with a signature ‘cloud house’ banger

Dance music superstar Gryffin is back with uplifting new single “Oceans” with rising Detroit vocalist Kid Joi via Darkroom/Interscope.

Following up on previous single “Dreams,” which already has nearly 3.5 millions Spotify streams, “Oceans” continues the Californian’s new sonic direction, diving deep into a world of bubbling synth tones and emotive textures. Featuring a soaring lead vocal from Kid Joi urging us to “jump in the water,” the track is a euphoric slice of Gryffin’s signature bouncy cloud house sound, backed by a driving uptempo beat and ascending piano chords.

Gryffin describes the song himself, “I’m absolutely thrilled to release Oceans. On this record I wanted to continue my return to the housier side of the project, channeling a pure summer vibe and energy. Kid Joi brought such a soulful feeling to this song that makes me feel so happy and emotional at the same time. Really hope y’all enjoy this one!”

Already a hit with fans, “Oceans” was first premiered by Gryffin at his recent Ultra Music Festival main stage sunset set, where he played to over 60k people.
