OATS Shows Chill and Ambient Side on “I’ll Wait'”

OATS

The origins of OATS music is particularly unique, as all the songs have been written and produced “off the grid”, using a self-sufficient sun-powered studio, affectionately nicknamed “Hippo.”

The band’s independent approach and inventive studio set up also highlights their broad compositional scope. OATS’ music has a lush, atmospheric and direct tone, which tips the hat off to seminal performers such as Boards of Canada, Nouvelle Vague or Jon Hopkins, only to mention a few. The project record’s release, “I’ll Wait” was published earlier in March 2018, and it reached millions of listeners within the span of only a few months and receiving enthusiastic responses, not only due to the band’s unique studio set up, but also due to the quality of the production itself.

In addition to the broad musical and creative coordinates of this project, OATS also complemented the music with some outstanding production aesthetics. The arrangement of the track is witty and direct, combining great overall tones and powerful dynamics, with heartfelt songwriting. This is the kind of song that feels very deep and personal, yet it has a very relatable feel that makes it very easy to relate to. If you enjoy the work of artists like Boards Of Canada or Jon Hopkins, you’ll definitely love this one!
