The Oaks – Masood

Some context first and then perhaps the realisation that for once we have a song that goes way beyond the usual soporific themes. Add in the fact that half of the profits from the Oaks ‘Our Fathers’ CD goes to the Afghan Widows fund and you begin to realise that this is a Florida band that has ventured beyond what is put in front of them. The music for its part is just as thoughtful; in fact the alluring ramble of ‘Masood’ provides a soothing backdrop for whatever occasion you find yourself in. Ryan Costello’s soft vocals are grounded in a similar style to that of Midlake’s Tim Smith, 70’s MOR, but it still offers a fascinating foil to the cascading music. The Oaks proves that music with lots of heart doesn’t necessarily have to sacrifice its soul. KD
