“‘Oatmeal’ is the intro song to the EP. A lot of my favorite albums have intros that are essentially sound collages, pasting together samples pulled from various sources. I thought that would be a fitting introduction to an introductory EP, with the samples on here setting up themes for the rest of project. The video was shot by filmmaker, and close-collaborator, Nnamdi Simon. The idea was to capture the daily process of making a song, starting with breakfast, catching an idea, and eventually making your way to the studio.”
