Ocean’s Envy is the professional name of emerging independent singer/songwriter Kurt Mantheiy. After spending a few years fronting a string of hardcore punk bands, the Dallas, Texas musician made his solo professional recording debut in 2020 with the single “Save a Seat.” That track introduced a talented genre-bending artist with keen pop sensibilities and a rock & roll edge.
By day, Mantheiy works as an entertainment lawyer in the music industry. At night, he turns the tables and steps to the mic. Working with producer Jonathan Paulsen he creates an infectious mix of pop, rock and hip-hop. Since his debut, Ocean’s Envy has released five singles and connected with fans around the world. Tracks like “Longshots” and “For You” have found cross-platform success.
“Statement Piece” is the latest single from Ocean’s Envy, released worldwide to all major streaming services on June 21, 2022. The song opens on a mid-tempo electronic pop groove. Kurt shows his punk roots with a dose of curled-lip attitude and some well placed power chords as he addresses an uncertain lover. In the chorus the track dips into a cool trap/rock mashup.
