We first bumped into these guys earlier this summer, down at Vantastival. Ever since, we’ve been keeping a close eye on Travis Oaks.
From gigging all over the country, winning a video competition to support The Hot Sprockets, releasing their first video single (see here), playing festivals and now releasing their debut EP. It’s safe to say it’s been a whirlwind of a year.
The band will fully release their debut EP on Friday 14 November. You can also catch them at their in-store at Tower Records on Thursday 13 November, where you can grab an exclusive copy and see the band live.
But before that, exclusively listen to the EP below.
NOTE: THE EXCLUSIVE STREAM HAS NOW ENDED – You can purchase the EP here
We recently sat down to review the album and we said: “…with the bluesy licks, the thumping rhythm section and lush harmonies. At times it’s remnant of a cooled down track by The Minutes or a slightly more up-tempo song from The White Stripes earlier catalogue. It’s an enticing song that features a plethora of catchy hooks and cries out to be played in a live setting.”
You can catch the guys at any of their upcoming live shows:
- November 8th – The High Cross, Drogheda – LOUTH
- November 9th – Saucy Sundays 4th Anniversary Party, Grand Social Dublin
- November 13th – Tower Live Showcase, Dublin
- November 21st – EP Launch – The Mercantile Dublin
