about

Jarrow (known to his mum and his buddies as Dan Oke) is a self-taught, self-produced, multi-instrumentalist 20 year old wunderkind who we stumbled upon in Footscray earlier this year. His debut single $$ Spoilers $$ has created quite the stir - premiering on Apple Music's Beats Radio and cracking Spotify's UK Viral top 15 - all without leaving Melbourne.

Jarrow describes his sound as "garage rock meets indie pop meets post punk meets free jazz” and while he was being tongue in cheek at the time, he's actually not that far off. His production is remarkably adventurous and self-assured while lyrically he's both profound and hilarious.

Dan refers to his debut album as “a collection of semi-autobiographical snippets of my life over a super eventful period of my life being put to tape with loud music playing over the top of it.” Initially, he believed that recording an LP was too “far-fetched” to be an achievable reality. Back in 2003 (when he was just 7 years of age!) he imagined one day recording an album, hence the name “2003 Dream”.

“a beautifully cohesive debut full-length release, that sits somewhere between lo fi dream pop & “slacker rock”” – Noisey

Track Name: Cube
All the people were standing there

and I was trying to hold my breath

They don't really care



I was trying to hold my breath when I saw your sister walk in

She don't really care

but who can blame her then?
Track Name: Mutual Feelings
Out of sight and out of mind

A bag of peanuts by her side

She always did

her research most of the time



Catherine Zeta stared me down

A crooked smile to crooked frown

The greatest face

to ever grace this town



And I was feeling so aligned

with the moon and stars alike

And the feeling's mutual



So what the heck is going on?

A breakdown of my favourite song

was not enough to keep things going strong



Bit by bit and piece by piece

She's halfway through a massive speech

and her sanity was

nothing short of reached



And I was feeling so aligned

with the moon and stars alike

And the feeling's mutual
Track Name: $$ Spoilers $$
I gave a spoiler alert

so you could figure it out

I swear I'm telling the truth

but you were living in doubt

Guess the future wasn't something that you were

willing to talk about



I gave you one of my jackets

as we walked home in the rain

I told a pretty bad joke

but you laughed anyway

Guess it didn't take a lot to win

your heart over that day



So what if everyone's staring?

I ain't got nothing to hide

I'd take a trillion bullets to keep my ego alive

and I would donate all my organs

just to keep you satisfied



And when they bury my body they'll say how lucky they were

for such a beautiful human to have been sharing the earth

and they'll carve my face in tombstones with the wrong date of birth
Track Name: Lacking Air
I gotta leave my bed but ain't feeling it

And they just can't seem to find anything

She never wrote a book about feeling cared

She never saw the signs that I was lacking air



I gotta leave my bed but I don't know when

And I just can't stand to see your face again

She never wrote a book about paying fares

She never saw the signs that I was lacking air
Track Name: House MD
I had a doctors appointment

that I didn't attend to

I thought that I would enjoy it

I was wrong



A million different reasons

A million different excuses

I tried to use them all at the same time



I had a dentist appointment

on hold until further notice

and they thought I was joking at the time



A million different reasons

A million different excuses

Tried to put all my favourites in the same line
Track Name: Friendzoned
And all your actions hold no ground

And you only go to pet shops just to browse

And don't tell me that you're so nice

But you're always stuck in friendzones every time



And all your actions hold no ground

And you only go to pet shops just to browse

And don't tell me that you've paid the price for being friendzoned every time
Track Name: Ode To Xoy
No Beastie Boy could fight these rights

I'm looking for answers and there's none in sight



No Morpheus can say I'm the one

I'm looking for answers and I don't see none



No Shannon Noll could lend me a drive

I'm looking for answers and there's none in sight
Track Name: James Impala
And I swear I don't know what it's for I bought all your clothes from the grocery store and I stare at your face as you fall to the floor and I don't know what I'm doing here no more
