Arjuna Oakes | Cautionary Tale
Written by Sam Dunlay on 28 May 2021
On top of minimalist jazz-influenced production, Oakes husky vocals shine. Mirrored with smooth sax and shimmering keys, ‘Cautionary Tale’ is a song dripping with swagger.
Throughout the 5.54 run time, Arjuna Oakes takes you along a journey. Beginning with a smooth sail as we soak up the smoky cigar-house vibes before exploding into a crescendo with an electric guitar solo.
The song features on Oakes 5 track EP ‘Recovery Pt.1’. The EP is home to some equally fantastic songs and showcases the Wellington-based artist’s exceptional capability and versatility as a songwriter.
