Australian R&B songstress Vanessa Elisha has just released her new track, "Ocean." Stream the single above.

Right now we're seeing a pretty big influx of artists trying out the indie R&B scene, but with "Ocean," Vanessa cements her own place in the movement, in large part due to her vocals. Her voice differs from those of her peers; whereas Jhené Aiko favors an angelic, whispery tone and Banks utilizes a controlled deep vocal, Vanessa balances both, singing with a slight nasal tone and lingering on her lyrics. The results are breathy, yet strong vocals that give "Ocean" a sense of urgency and vulnerability. In addition, L.A. based producer J-Louis has layered the track with atmospheric, lethargic beats that make it the type of jam you can play over lazy summer bonfires.

Vanessa Elisha "Ocean" Lyrics:

Come to the past, to the past
You can touch me just like that
We can go back, go back, go back
I'm feeling what we had, what we had
You can do it just like that, like that, like that
Surround me like an ocean
Protect me like I'm broken

I don't know where I go
I don't know where I fit in
Where do I finish and where does he begin
Fooling around
Try not to feel so educated
We mess around
Too close to feel the separation

Oh baby I miss you so, I miss you so, I miss you so
Oh baby I miss you so, I miss you so

Come to the past, to the past
You can touch me just like that
We can go back, go back, go back
I'm feeling what we had, what we had
You can do it just like that, like that, like that
Surround me like an ocean
Protect me like I'm broken

Let it all out
Enough to feel this admiration
We could climb out
Your water is my safe haven
Crying but I love you, you're all I wanted
One that I could go until the morning
Then I'm on my own, I'm mourning
Falling into you

Oh baby I miss you so, I miss you so, I miss you so
Oh baby I miss you so, I miss you so

Come to the past, to the past
You can touch me just like that
We can go back, go back, go back
I'm feeling what we had, what we had
You can do it just like that, like that, like that
Surround me like an ocean
Protect me like I'm broken

Surround me like an ocean
