Poison Oak Reach The Summit With 'Hope You Like The View'

Poison Oak, a quartet originally hailing from Townsville, Australia, have been busy over the start of the New Year with the writing, recording, and release of their new latest track ‘Hope You Like The View’

The band have successfully found their own unique sound since its conception which can be described as packed with raw energy.

It can also be viewed as a delicate blend of punk and alternative rock offering something to cater to most musical tastes within the rock genre. 

The song follows a common meter and starts with the twanging of the electric guitar for four bars before the drums and bass join in to create a sudden dynamic shift. This ultimately pushes the song into new heights for eight bars before dropping slightly to accommodate for the first verse. The opening line ‘’Don’t tell me what you came here for / I won’t try and be a Labrador’’ leaves room for interpretation to its audience and offers an alternative perspective to the meaning behind the lyrics.  

The lo-fi production of the track is commonly associated with punk as the aim is to retain a sense of raw power and intensity which embodies the genre.  The song is exciting and paves way to the revival of the ‘90s pop-punk glory days which saw the likes of Green Day and Blink 182 stake a claim to fame in their heyday. 

The guys have already firmly established a strong fan base in their hometown and have managed to branch off further afield around different towns and cities. Their sound has now made it to the other side of the world and is sure to receive with appraisal from their budding fanbase here in the UK and Ireland. Follow their social media pages to stay tuned to future release dates and upcoming gigs.
