North Queensland based rockers Poison Oak share the vibrant and uplifting new offering ‘Found Myself’.
Capturing an essence of early 00’s pop-punk contrasted with the tracks breezy lyrical content and sense of optimism, ‘Found Myself’ showcases the bands tight musical abilities as well as their ear for a catchy melody. Anthemic and energetic, the tracks bright soundscape of crunchy guitar lines, punching drums and driving bass is reflected in the urgent yet thoughtful vocal delivery. Like a mixture between The Strokes and Jimmy Eat World, the track is a fine example of how to effectively convert the energy and rawness of a live performance into. studio recording.
Speaking about the single, the band explain: “The song came together so fast from just a jam we were having when rehearsing. Ray had this chord progression that he was messing around with, then I came up with the main riff. Then we had the lyrics and melody literally five minutes later.”
With the promise of an upcoming EP, ‘Found Myself’ is just one of the new tunes due from the band in the coming months.
