Jarrow is the solo project of 21 year-old Footscray-based musician Dan Oke.
After stumbling across Dan’s outstanding debut self-released EP Legitimate in 2015 we were immediately taken by his cheeky mix of garage pop & psychedelia. We teamed up with Dan to release his 2016 album 2003 Dream, a record which he recorded while on exchange in Nashville, TN. 2003 Dream was a sophisticated, hilarious and masterfully produced debut record which signalled to the world that Dan was a musician of extraordinary potential.
2017 has seen saw Jarrow team up with Brisbane indie-punks Good Boy to produce the Cody/Braap Split 7” before heading back into the studio to record his second full length album.
2003 Dream (2016)
Named after a dream he had in (you guessed it) 2003 that one day he might record and release a record, 2003 Dream plays like a 30-minute degustation of genres that Jarrow has mastered. Punk, jazz, pop and straight-up indie rock. The album is brilliant from the first seconds of ambient instrumental opening Cube though to the final bars of the hilariously titled but musically brilliant closer James Impala.
Jarrow/Good Boy Split 7” (2017)
Melbourne’s Jarrow and Brisbane’s Good Boy team up for a combined 7 minutes of brilliant and creative garage-punk. Only 200 copies were pressed.
