The OlésSanta Barbara based reggae-rock band The Olés have just released a new music video for their single ‘Sabado Tarde,’ a classic tale of Isla Vista life. You may remember our feature of an early version of the track featured on another beautiful 2013 Memorial Day here in the States. During Deltopia the band filmed the aforementioned video in one clip walking through the crowds on Del Playa, which is guaranteed to bring back some great memories of the area.

Today we feature the similar yet entirely different sounding track ‘Sabadub‘ a more leisurely meltdown for the weekend ahead of you. The track comes from the band’s debut LP, Strickly Speaking which moves beyond just reggae and rock into hip hop and funk. Some highlights are their cover of Atmosphere’s “Sunshine,” the feel good track “Poor,” and the 1960s worthy protest song, “Landlord.” The band’s mission is to deliver positivity through thoughtful lyrics backed by upbeat grooves. Frontman Matt Tweed says “Writing music allows me to find the silver linings in life and give them vibrancy through lyrics. We have a responsibility as musicians to promote peace and positivity when we have a microphone on a stage or songs in a stereo.”

The group has been selected to play at 3 festivals in the next month starting with the California Roots Music and Arts festival in Monterrey this weekend and ending with the Live Oak Festival up in Santa Barbara on June 17, the cornerstone for their first out-of-state tour! All the dates follow further below, under the featured video.
