While the OhSees (formerly known as OCS) used to be a side-project for John Dwyer, it has become his primary band after the demise of the Coachwhips. The singer/guitarist has released three albums of acoustic folk with them, most recently dropping The Cool Death of Island Raiders, an album that, arguably, should have included “Sea of Love.” The song is an eerie slow burner reminiscent of ’60s girl-group ballads, save the off-kilter reverb and the interlude on 9/11, which launch the song back into contemporary waters.
