Rising stars of New Zealand guitar pop Soaked Oats continue to be on the ascendent with the announcement of a fresh wave of free local shows, following hot on the heels of their ongoing 'Shuggah Doom' summer tour of Australasia, continuing in Melbourne this weekend. The indefatigable four-piece have also finally unveiled the aforementioned single 'Shuggah Doom' (pronounced "sugar doom"), the instantly catchy and reflective lead track from their forthcoming EP, along with a charmingly stylish and surreal video directed by Jake Munro. Word's definitely getting out about the hard-gigging band, as they've just been offered a slot at Brighton's prestigious The Great Escape mega-festival this May – if anyone in the UK is keen to book some side-shows for the up-for-it crew, now is your chance. Take in the band's upcoming show info and enjoy the new clip, below Soaked Oats lyricist and lead vocalist Oscar Mein's insightful words on 'Shuggah Doom'...

"The song was written as if writing a script, the video and song play with each other and is intended to make us look at how we narrativise our own lives and desire to have lives worth telling a story about. But how that’s kind of meaningless because it’s about the living and everyone trying their best to do that."
