OSCAR KEY SUNG.
Well this is freakin’ refreshing. For so long now, there has been this nu-skool r’n’b vibe coming out of Australia. When it hit (think Collarbones, Oscar + Martin etc), it was amazing. Here was this sound that was familiar, but was now coming across in this really soulful delicate way. But with the advent of that glitchtronica sound that began to occupy the electronic music scene, the whole delicate r’n’b sound got a little lost.
So it’s awesome that Oscar Key Sung, once a man putting out some excellent glitchy soul music has subtly changed his approach. The new track ‘All I Could Do’ still manages to pack a punch with Oscar’s excellent vocal tones, but gone are those delicate hip-hop inspired grooves. Instead, in their place is this left-field club sound, still with an element of delicate sounds and instrumentation, but all sitting on top of this pulsating kick, that sounds so much more commanding and blazingly confident.
This is excellent.
