Ticket Info:

Fresh back from Australian release shows Soaked Oats welcome you to their world with their debut album Working Title released via Aussie indie tastemaker label Dot Dash(Methyl Ethel, Carla Geneve, Client Liaison). Light years beyond the band’s previous music about fruit, Working Title delves wider into the worlds of their beloved songwriters, drawing influences from funk, psychedelia, electronica and hip-hop to deliver their strongest piece of work yet. In celebration of the release of their new album, Soaked Oats are embarking on a 4-date tour across Aotearoa with support from Australian artist, Hachiku.

Written and recorded over the last eighteen months, the New Zealand four-piece group’s first full-length album explores the contrasting ways we perceive and interact with the world, how we define ourselves through work, and the subtle shift from viewing objects in the world as fixed ‘things’, to experiencing them as processes and interactions unfolding.

Produced by Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins, Marlon Williams, The Chills), engineered by Tom Bell (David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights), and mastered by Christian Wright (Abbey Road Studios, Fontaines DC), the album delves into new sonic territory, with inspiration coming from 60’s psychedelia and dance-rock among others.

Soaked Oats percolated into existence in Dunedin, New Zealand, in 2017. Catapulted by their fast-evolving songwriting chops, the band’s profile and fanbase are on the rise. The group have become known for endearing performances and live shows that have granted them access to tours and festival appearances throughout the UK, America and Australasia.
