about

I am Oak is known for their modest and calm songs with guitar at the core originally. But with their upcoming album 'Osmosis' they reinvented their sound, writing songs on the piano as a starting point, which can really be heard on their new song 'Swells'.

Thijs Kuijken about the single: “In the song Swells I got to explore the more atmospheric aspect of the piano sound, using it to create both a very complex and full sound as well as a very minimalistic approach with a lot of open spaces combined in one song.”

'Swells' is also featured on the upcoming album 'Osmosis' which is set for release on September 6. Pre-order the album now!

Track Name: Swells
As soon as the road follows the bend
you’ll arrive at your prize
tucked away to the side

From the corner of my eye
some form of life springs up
and hurls ahead

I’m just trying to forget

Fear looks like a black boar
folding itself underneath the guardrail like a snake
I swear that swerve softened the earth
and I emerged unhurt

I saw it all moving along

Do what allows you to be glad

Fear looks like a black boar
folding itself underneath the guardrail like a snake
I saw it all moving along
Grasp at the helm

I’m just trying to forget

Do what allows you to be glad
