Announced: Soaked Oats – Working Title + ‘The Way It Works’

Soaked Oats welcome you to their world and the way it works with their debut album Working Title out Friday, 18th November via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.

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.

The majority of recording took place in a community hall in the remote township of Okuru, Haast, situated on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island where the coastal road ends at the foot of Mt. Aspiring National Park. Partly in response to that isolated landscape, Working Title has unfolded as a more introspective offering from a band that are known typically for their cheerful sound.
