France based pop/rock trio Oakman have released their brand new single “Fantasy”, out now via Rude Records. Written and produced by the band themselves, the upbeat, bouncy track muses on how people tend to live in a fantasy world where they’re not being true to themselves. The song realises that we can’t live that way and should instead be who we really are. Fans can listen to “Fantasy” here music.ruderecords.com/fantasy and watch the lyric video here.
“The pandemic and the lockdown was a long period of questioning. When you try to realize your dreams, your projects, you put so much energy into it that nothing can stop you,” says the band. “But when everything stops, it’s a hard blow. And this time, it was the whole world that stopped! So you start to question your life, your choices and even think about giving up and you say to yourself, ‘that would only be proving the people who never believed in you right.’ So when you finally realize that you can’t give up who you are, you start to find a new energy where this time you want to fight even harder to reach your goals because ‘this time you want it all.’”
Last month, the trio shared “Night”, a track that reflects on the fleeting moments of life we take for granted and reminds us to live in these moments and enjoy life. The song quickly garnered the attention of the likes of Billboard who dubbed it “a carpe diem bop.” The video for “Night” was also featured on MTV Asia.
