I AM OAK – “Palpable”

a0802849587_2I AM OAK is Dutch musician and singer Thijs Kuijken. His deep, almost brooding vocals are what pulled me in at the start, and the rest of his focused, indie folk music invited me to stay. He has won many Dutch based awards for best new artist, which doesn’t surprise me. His music is intelligent, unpretentious, and wonderfully relaxing to listen to. “Palpable” is the kind of song you could put on when you need guidance or understanding, and it delivers, with it’s soothing, yet haunting drum beats and slinking guitar melodies. This music video, shot in the gorgeous woods of Slovenia, is all done in one take, and really captures the essence of the song. “Palpable” is from I AM OAK’s third studio album, Nowhere or Tammensaari, which came out in 2012.
