Soaked Oats are a young four-piece band hailing from Dunedin, New Zealand. They write songs with thoughtful lyricism and guitar-driven pop sounds.
The band has been making waves across their homeland. After forming at the beginning of 2017, the band racked up 70 shows culminating in an appearance at Rhythm and Vines. In this time they released their debut EP ‘Stone Fruit Melodies’, followed later in the year by a second EP titled ‘No Slip Ups’.
In January 2018 Soaked Oats have completed a Summer tour (aka Soirée de Sludge) which saw them playing to expanding audiences at sold out venues across New Zealand. Since then the band has begun putting the finishing touches on a third release that they look to put out in the coming months.
“With a name like Soaked Oats, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that the audio produced by these boys is real cheery! It’s music to wake up to, music to listen to in the sunshine, music to warm your insides.” – (Pilerats)
“Bold colours and dancing beats cut nicely through the grizzly cold of the NZ winter, warming the bones with relevant words and pop/rock’n’roll rhythms.” – (NZ Musician)
“They have an edge of course but they’re so talented and hard working and approachable that they’re able to make it feel like home, even if they’re playing to an away crowd. Even our security have commented on the lack of trouble at these gigs.” – (The Spinoff)
