Made of Oak


Released November 6th, 2015
One week after debuting his premiere EP on Fact Magazine, “Penumbra” by Made of Oak, is now available worldwide. Being released by Haven Sounds in Canada & Partisan Records in the States, the brand new project is available on Itunes and Made of Oak's Store.

Sanborn also recently unveiled the compelling new visual for his song, “Side Rides,” one of five instrumental tracks featured on Penumbra. The video, directed by Endless Endless, features Sanborn, up-and-coming Charlotte rapper Well$ and Durham-based producer and artist Professor Toon – all friends from the North Carolina music scene.

“Once I fixated on the idea of making a silent rap video, it kinda haunted me,” Sanborn shared, “Ironically, it ended up saying so much.”
Made of Oak is also touring this fall, playing headline dates that start in Los Angeles with Tuskha. See below for a complete list of shows.
" 'Penumbra follows the arc of Sanborn's movement through a period of doubt to one of actualization, as told in the present tense' ".

"...Made of Oak finds Sanborn taking on full duty of crafting unique melodies while also turning to a slightly darker atmosphere as on the chilly 8-bit thump of 'Pinebender'."

"Judging by the new music we can hear in the clip, it looks like he's embracing the warm synths that made Sylvan Esso so enjoyable"
