This Ocean

Album: Unbreakable (2012)
  • Gordon Bahary explained this song to us: "The day I wrote it, I was tired of the disputes in life between peoples of various countries, religions, etc. I asked myself where it all leads? Is it all worth it to hang on to identity at that high a price? I realized that after all the nonsense, love is what people special to you leave behind, that you can recall. So I encouraged myself to remember what is lasting, and wrote music to it."
  • Bahary elaborated on the mentality behind his debut, Unbreakable, in the album's press release: "It's about resilience and getting yourself back on your feet after the blows that life throws you. And it's also about spirituality, music and love wherever you can conjure it up - that's the medicine to help along that resilience."
