Listen To Arjuna Oakes' New EP 'Recovery, Pt. 1'

Chris Cudby / Friday 20th November, 2020 11:15AM

Pōneke-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Arjuna Oakes reveals his new collection Recovery, Pt. 1 today with impeccable timing, summing up feelings of exhaustion and a glimmer of hope for the future, as we collectively attempt to move on from a year that even Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described as being "frankly terrible". Sounding worldly beyond his youthful age of 20 years, the prodigious talent serves up five soulful and sophisticated reflections, brought to life by a sumptuous instrumental backing — alternating between dreamy late nite grooves and fiery big band arrangements. While listeners can melt into Oakes' entrancing world of sound, his oft-pointed lyrics pierce mellow jazz-inflected moods with plenty of bite. Wrap your ears around the whole package below and don't miss his launch events tonight at Auckland's Tuning Fork and this Saturday evening at his hometown's Meow...
