Melding the aggression of punk and technical intricacies of jazz, OATS are making their mark with an emotional and hard-hitting live act. Luscious chords and theatrical vocals go alongside earth-shaking bass and virtuosic drums. Their refreshing blend of genres such as emo, math rock and experimental hip hop ensure a passionate performance not to be missed.
The band’s songs are injected with a sense of societal urgency. “REFORMAT TO RUN” is a plea for its listeners to strive for change and growth despite discomfort. “TV DINNER” deals with our attention being held captive by an endless stream of media. “FLOOD” is about the anxiety consuming us as the world is affected by climate change.
The band released their newest single “MAGNOLIA” in February 2023 and played at Complexity Fest that same month. OATS is currently recording their debut EP as well as nurturing the Amsterdam musical scene with their Lilac Underground Sessions, showcasing up-and-coming bands.
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience OATS in all their glory at GÂRDEN. Prepare to be captivated by their emotional and hard-hitting live act, where luscious chords and theatrical vocals harmonise with earth-shaking bass and virtuosic drums. This is a performance that will leave you breathless.
