OAKLND is the moniker Colin Mckillop gave himself after deciding to pursue a solo project, splitting from his touring band and converting a corner of his bedroom into a makeshift studio. The result after one year is the paragon of “mellow synth-pop”; ‘Hold On’. OAKLND’s use of thick, creamy textures create the dynamic and ultimately chilled out soundscapes, revealing that Californian pop sound we all love.
