NVDES is a Los Angeles-based experimental electropop project formed by musician and producer Josh Ocean, best known as one-half of the duo Ghost Beach. Conceived as a quirky indie collective, Ocean and a handful of core collaborators began releasing singles beginning with “Before the Weekend Comes” in 2015, followed by tracks like “Fela,” “Don’t Fvck Your Neighbor,” and “The Other Side.” Generally laptop-based, NVDES‘ music incorporates a wide range of electronic sounds and styles. They released their debut EP, Life with Lobsters, in late 2016, followed in 2017 by the singles “Turning Heads,” “Do Ya Think About Me,” and “D.Y.T. (Do Your Thing),” the latter of which featured vocals from Remmi and gained widespread exposure thanks to its appearance in an iPhone commercial. The tracks were later collated into NVDES‘ second EP, Vol. 2. A few months later, in March 2018, the single “Louì” appeared. Their debut full length album VIBE CITY UTAH is out now.
