Soaked Oats are a young four-piece band hailing from Dunedin, New Zealand who have been described as "a southern stew of Kurt Vile and Mac DeMarco with a good shake of Kevin Morby ".
Coming to notoriety for writing songs about stoned fruit ('Avocado Aficionado', 'I'm a Peach'), 60+ good-time live shows in a year including a blinder set at Rhythm & Vines 2017/18, and releasing three e.p.s in their short 18 month existence.
The band is made up of lead vocalist Oscar Mein who scribes the clever, witty and thoughtful observations on life. And fruit. Guitarist, Henry Francis and his amazing pedal-board is on the noble path to tone mastery making the instrument sound like it was made by unicorns. Rhythm section Max Holmes (bass) and Conor Feehly (drums) provide the backbone, the funk and keep the party going.
For the uninitiated, we invite you to dip your ears and eyes into the chilly southern land of Soaked Oats and their music video for 'Gum-15'.
