With verses sung by frontman Matt Tweed and the choruses and harmonies sung by guitarist Cole Leksan, the duo have garnered a praising response for their songwriting ability.
But all music heads know that drum and bass are the backbone of the reggae trip, and drummer Eric Lordan as well as bassist Daniel Kearney keep the rhythm within pin point precision on the new Westward Bound EP.
Each of The Olés’ songs have a groove and a story that captures the meaning of living on the California Coast.
In Isla Vista, where the band hails from, The Olés have been known for playing raucous party-rocking live shows. The new addition of trumpet and trombone to their sound has brought The Olés into a new sonic level. Westward Bound is the first batch of The Olés’
recordings that has included Nick Marks on trumpet and Dominick Burnham on trombone. These two jazz cats have brought memorable tonal aspects to each song on the EP.
Currently The Olés are working to finish the recording and mixing process of the forthcoming album "Strictly Speaking" This will be a Summer release followed by a few runs of shows throughout California and The West Coast.
