Description/Reviews
OAK is a four-piece Norwegian band that originally emerged from a folk-rock duo. The four members have a diverse background spanning from classical piano to electronica, prog- and hard-rock, with references to the alternative scene as well as progressive rock, have made a distinguished unique sound.
Both music and lyrics are filled with contrasts, the chase for the beautiful within the ugly and vice versa, all floating in clouds of melancholy.
The lyrics are based on real dreams or heavily inspired by them. Central to the stories are the hunt for childish purity, illusions of old relations and relationships, the thought of better and glorified times.
