North Of 64 “Lose Control”
Oakrest is a band that started in Keswick ON, and is based out of Toronto ON, Canada. 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 are masters at rhythm filled hooks and dreamy melodies.” says Bridjet Mendyuk of New Noise Magazine.
Jacob Szabo fronts the band on Vocals, while Jacob Graves slams Rhythm Guitar, Michael Van shreds on Lead Guitar, and Chris Zoubaniotis thrashes on Drums.
While Oakrest used to be all about fast paced guitar and distortion, they have found their unique sound whilst writing/recording their first full length record, Summer Sun, that is said to come out 07/08/2022. The topics Oakrest writes about mainly include heartbreak, love, feeling alone, etc. however, you’ll find the music behind the words is very uplifting, positive and fun to move along too.
