Soaked Oats are a young four-piece band hailing from Dunedin, New Zealand who have been described as "a southern stew of Kevin Morby and LCD Soundsystem with a good shake of Mac DeMarco ". Shoulder tapped as “the new Dunedin sound” by The Spinoff website described as “a sort of psychedelic surf rock infused with a general frothiness”.
Since forming in early 2017 the band have come to notoriety for writing songs about stoned fruit ('Avocado Aficionado', 'I'm a Peach'), completing a multitude of tours around home country New Zealand, selling out dates in Australia and undertaking a 10 thousand mile / 20 date tour of the United States in a 1980's R.V.. Along the way they've become known for endearing live performances showcasing the band's penchant for joyous songwriting and high energy shows. As well as touring prolifically, the band have released three EPs in their short existence. Tour Supports have included : Tiny Ruins (NZ), Hockey Dad (AU).
The band is made up of lead vocalist Oscar Mein who scribes the clever, witty and thoughtful observations on life. And fruit. Guitarist, Henry Francis and his amazing pedal-board is on the noble path to tone mastery making the instrument sound like it was made by unicorns. Rhythm section Max Holmes (bass) and Conor Feehly (drums) provide the backbone, the funk and keep the party going.
“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
With live shows from Mexico City to Haida Gwaii, an east coast tour supporting The Charlatans UK, and recording with Jason Corbett of Jacknife Sound, the journey of FRANKIIE over the last year has been non-stop. Their forthcoming album Forget Your Head, due September 20th on Paper Bag Records, marries the lush qualities of Big Thief with an intimate anthemic approach reminiscent of Heart. Reverb-drenched guitars and intoxicating harmonies have united 4 women into a dream-rock outfit whose live performance can’t be missed.
FRANKIIE is Francesca Carbonneau, Nashlyn Lloyd, Zoe Fuhr, and Victoria Sieczka.
