Hey Ocean!, Aron D'Alesio, Partner: Radio 3's top 30 songs for the week of August 28, 2017

Editorial Staff

Vancouver synth-pop trio Hey Ocean! are back after a three-year hiatus with a new single called "Sleepwalker," which checks in at #30 on our chart. They recently announced a Canadian tour that will feature songs spanning the band's entire catalogue. It starts on October 12 in Kelowna, B.C.


Young Rival guitarist and singer Aron D'Alesio released his debut solo album last week, and it sounds like the Beach Boys being played through a warped time machine. The mesmerizing single "Diamond Ring" is the highest debut on the chart this week at #24.

Other debuts this week include Adaline's "How Could We Know? and Purity Ring with "Asido."

The first single from Partner's debut album climbs to #1 this week. "Everybody Knows" is a great showcase of the band's charm, humour and irresistible hooks. Their album, In Search Of Lost Time, will be out on September 8.
