Zoltán „Zoli“ Téglás ist kein Unbekannter, er hat zum Beispiel bei Pennywise, The Misfits und Ignite mitgewirkt. Seit Kurzem hat er eine neue Band am Start: Ocean Hills. Téglás, Peter Lucas, Daniel Szebenyi und Reinder Oldenburger sagen von ihrer Musik: Alternative Rock, der sich wie Urlaub anfühlt und einfach schöne Stimmung erzeugen soll.
Who is behind Ocean Hills?
The guys in the band Ocean Hills either live by the ocean in Southern California, the Hollywood Hills or the hillside of Buda across from Pest in Hungary. We were trying to find names that represented the band and we came up with the idea that these are the places that are the most important and magical to all of us.
