 Poison Oak titled releases new single, called: ‘Losing Ourselves’. Out now!  

“Losing Ourselves”, is a track about forgetting trends that sometimes dictate our youth. It’s about growing into yourself doing the things and hobbies that you like, despite what anyone thinks.

James: I had the introduction riff for a while, and I originally was playing it in the key of A, rather than E. I sort of called it my Smashing Pumpkins/Silversun Pickups riff, as it used the open E strings while going back and forth from maj 7th note to the tonic. Which is pretty common among those bands’. Then one morning, after going out with some friends, I wrote the song based off the feeling I got from the night. Where I didn’t really care about, “what I should be doing”, and “where I should go” and basically “what people think about me”. Letting go I guess of all common things we do sometimes to try and fit into society, like wanting to take pictures for social media etc, to make yourself look like you have a “fun life” or whatever. After that night, it made me realise that I don’t have time for it, and there’s nothing I enjoy about it either. Basically, summing up what it is to grow into an adult, and I just don’t have time to care about things that don’t matter to me. I pretty much sat and wrote the song out in an hour.

We then recorded it with Mark Myers from the Middle East. Tightening things up, adding things in etc. To make it shine a little more.
