The Oats are an indie rock band, formed in 2008. The band consists of Andrés Mora (Guitar & Vocals), Alfonso Rodríguez (Bass), Oscar Brena(Drums) and Armando Vega (Guitar & Vocals). Via Myspace they released some songs that caught the attention of their producer arm4ndo (Niña, Quiero Club, Chicote).
Together they just have finished the recording of their first EP titled "Smokin Smokings". It was recorded in Mexico by arm4ndo, mixed in Los Angeles by Carlos Castro and arm4ndo (Molotov, Brian "Head" Welch) and mastered in New York by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins) in 2010.
Listening to The Oats you can clearly hear their influences, such as The Libertines, Arctic Monkeys, Blur, Kasabian and Travis, for example.
