The Oats

 Mexico City, The Federal District, MEX

Less is more and we try to reflect that in our music. We love what we do and our shows are amazing because our music is quite energetic, untamed and honest.


We are The Oats, an indie rock band from Mexico city that was formed in the hot summer of 2008. We have a fairly strong fan base here in Mexico and it started to expand to Canada like the swine flu after we finished a four month tour in Toronto, where we had the opportunity to play at the NXNE 11.

Our first EP, "Smokin Smokings", which got great reviews, gave us the opportunity to play abroad, to experience different cultures and to have sex with lots and lots of people!

We are 100% independent and love what we do. Everything we have achieved has been possible because of our hard work. We are really focused on getting our band to be recognized throughout the world.

We just finished the tracking process of our second EP, to be mixed and mastered in Los Angeles by the end of spring 2012. We are going to NY in June with the help of our friend and consultant Joe Foster (My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain) and will be there for a couple of months, with gigs at Pianos, Sullivan Hall, Otto's Shrunken Head, Don Pedro's and a lot more places to be confirmed.

Hope our tunes speak for themselves!
