New Music: Oscar

Bedroom-pop genius setting his sights on writing for RiRi.

Our ears were first introduced to the eerily-giddy sounds of Oscar Scheller (trading simply as Oscar) at the start of the year when the always reliable Wichita Records put out the single “Daffodil Days”. It’s a wonderfully strange number starting out darkly before it explodes into a gloriously camp chorus. The beautifully gritty video premiered on Noisey in March. Have a listen below…

…or here if you wanna learn the lyrics!

The track saw Oscar’s stock sky rocket and our young pretender bagged himself support slots with Spain’s Hinds (FKA Deers) which judging from recent Facebook posts looked pretty fun.

Crazy shows at this year’s Great Escape alerted the nation’s indie press including DIY Nue & NME’s Radar sections where our young pretender revealed an ambition to write for the biggest names in the business including Rihanna. Could be a joke, could be real, we’re not sure.

This track was followed up last month with “Beautiful Words” which sounds like an awesome Patrick Wolf song…

…and the last few days has also seen the appearance of another track from an E.P. that will hit the shelves on the 22nd of June 2015. It’s another breezy number, perfectly timed for Summer to start in earnest. Judge that one for yourself too…

We likey.
