New Zealand’s indie sludge-pop rockers Soaked Oats are on a high.
After a massively successful summer tour of Australia and New Zealand and, having just returned from their UK tour, the band have released their new EP Sludge Pop – digitally and on limited edition 10″ multi-coloured vinyl via Dot Dash.
Soaked Oats also reveal their most ambitious music video to date for ‘Don’t Chew‘ – premiered via Pilerats. Of the song itself, lyricist Oscar Mein shares “Inspired by the line from Cormac McCarthy’s ‘All the Pretty Horses’ – “my daddy used to tell me not to chew on something that was eatin’ you.” A song intended as the exhale of the EP; digestion of what has been and a reminder never to get too caught up in thought cycles, especially when they become detrimental. “Spit it out and let it breathe a little while”.”
