The Rare Occasions are an LA-based, New England-bred indie rock band known for their explosive garage rock anthems with catchy vocal harmonies. Brian McLaughlin (singer) and Luke Imbusch (drummer) have been making music together since their early teenage years. They formed The Rare Occasions while attending college in Boston where they met Jeremy Cohen (bassist). Since then, the band have toured nationally, won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and released a vast catalog of music online.
“Seasick” is the latest single from The Rare Occasions, and the first new track from the band since their newfound virality with “Notion”. The song discusses the passage of time and the unrelenting forces of chaos and directionality that time wields over us all. Set to a teetering backdrop of surf rock tones and nautical imagery, “Seasick” reminds us to pause every so often amidst the tumultuous waves to see how far we’ve traveled.
