Soaked Oats – “Gum-15”

Soaked Oats are New Zealand quartet that produce a suave, twangy vein of rock that shines bright on new single “Gum-15”. The track is the first single off their upcoming EP No Slip Ups. The verses alternate between rhythmic-led minimalism and the incorporation of twangy guitars, leading into a delectable distortion-friendly burst at 02:13 as the group proclaims “here I am / here we are.” This is a very solid effort from a group who impressed previously with their Stone Fruit Melodies release, streaming in full below:
