Bio

Who is Purley Oaks?

~Jangly guitars, mischievous melodies, dazed visions and sunshine grooves melt together to tell tales of comfort and confusion, desire and doubt, adoration and anxiety, daydream and disaster; All in his head ~

Purley Oaks is the alter-ego of 21 year old Fremantle local Simon Bazeley, who's spent the past 2 years carefully writing and recording the sounds of Purley Oaks. Inspired by all that is around him (music, art, film, sun, fun, beer, friends), the music is written and recorded entirely by Bazeley, offering a direct glimpse into the head of Purley Oaks.

Debut Album 'In His Head' (2016) out now!!

A neatly wound little track from Purely Oaks. Reminded me a bit of DMAs at the start tbh. But overall it's continuing the line of clever songwriters coming out of WA.

Just wanted to let you know I'm in my office and the guy behind me is so obnoxiously chewing his lunch and clicking his pen over and over. I am choosing to peacefully protest and put my headphones on and listen to this track and all your other rippas real loud and it is so very calming. You are a 21st century hero in my eyes.
