Toronto based pop-punks are excited to share their debut album.
Canadian pop-rockers Oakrest has released the quintessential summer album. From the highs and lows of a relationship to fighting an internal battle to truly find yourself, this debut brings warm nights spent with your favourite people to mind.
On the new release, singer Jacob Szabo shares, “Summer Sun to me personally, is some of our best work. We felt as a whole that we couldn’t just put out another EP and needed to tell a bigger story with an LP. This record revolves around the theme of relationships, whether it’s between your partner, your friends, or yourself.”
Oakrest recently released the album’s lead single, Olivia. Taking inspiration from classics like Fountains of Wayne’s Stacy’s Mom and newer hits like Seaway’s Mrs David, Olivia tells the story of carrying around an all-consuming crush and the adrenaline rush that comes with putting it into words.
Oakrest’s sound mixes elements of pop-rock/pop-punk bands, such as The Cars, Fountains Of Wayne, New Found Glory and blink-182, to newer age bands such as Seaway, Neck Deep, and Young Culture. Oakrest were once all about fast-paced guitar and distortion. They now have found their unique sound whilst writing/recording their first full-length record due out in the summer of 2022. Oakrest writes about heartbreak, feeling alone, relationships etc. however, you’ll find the music behind the words is uplifting, positive and fun to move along to.
Oakrest will embark on the Summer Sun Tour with special guests North Of 64. Fans can find ticket info HERE.
