The Wild Oaks

The Wild Oaks is an indie/rock/pop group that was formed by the binding power Buenos Aires, Argentina has on traveling ex-pats. By the city’s influence, and perhaps more so, love, and the adventures of it invited random foreigners to get together and create music. Strong indie pop influences, combined with South African, Mexican rock/pop and mariachi styles along with producer Matthew Golombisky’s background in jazz, led to the creation of The Wild Oaks (TWO).

The Wild Oaks originally started 5 years ago where Ruann, Matthew, Hiro, and Scott started playing all over the city to explore the adventure of a random mix of cultures from USA (Matthew), Mexico (Scott), Japan (Hiro) and Ruann (South Africa). Live shows included playing/busking on trains in the subways and also on the streets of Buenos Aires. The group then “Dirty Skeletons” transformed into TWO from the wild and exploratory shows to create a sound that is danceable and with a message for each listener to interpret in their own way.

“Oaks” is also South African slang for guys or ‘dudes’ and is a play on words for the significance of the different roots from various cultures to join as one banded tree to create something fresh and unique.

The group is currently recording with talented Colombian and American producers in Buenos Aires to finish their first EP to be released with indie label, ears&eyes Records, and also performing shows around Latin America.
lyrics
I cannot control this feeling unknown
I cannot contain, the way I’ve been made
you cannot deny, that look in your eye
You cannot bestow, that I’m going rogue

You and I are running while that beat is drumming
Take a chance and fall you might just break the wall
Step up to the stage, you might just be insane
Let that spirit rage salvation is your brain

Freedom is calling our names, freedom exploding in flames
Freedom is calling our names, freedom exploding in flames

You and I are running while that beat is drumming
Take a chance and fall you might just break the wall
Step up to the stage, you might just be insane
Let that spirit rage salvation is your brain

I cannot contain the way I’ve been raised
Cannot control this feeling unknown
I cannot deny, that look in your eye
I cannot bestow, that I’m going rogue

Freedom, freedom, freedom, is calling our names
Freedom, freedom, freedom, is calling our names
Freedom, freedom, freedom is calling our names
