Slowly but surely, 2016 is becoming the year of Oscar.
In May, the North Londoner released his much anticipated debut LP “Cut and Paste” to considerable acclaim, with everyone from The Guardian and Mojo to Wonderland and NME swooning over its considerable charms. That was swiftly followed by a slew of appearances at every festival worth its salt this summer, including Glastonbury, Latitude and Field Day, while September sees him kicking off his very own headline tour through UK & Europe.
To ratchet up the excitement even further, Oscar is releasing a brand new version of previous single “Breaking My Phone”, with guest vocals from long-time friend and similarly white-hot & rapidly ascendant GIRLI who is already gaining notoriety for her brash, take no prisoners attitude.
On this new version of “Breaking My Phone” she imbues the track with a unique swagger, her pop rap flow creating an exciting, tangible friction when set against Oscar’s idiosyncratic baritone. It’s a brilliant and totally unexpected twist on the single and one that lends it whole new dimension entirely.
GIRLI will take her imitable live show on the road with Oscar as the main support for his autumn tour – dates are as follows;
27th Portsmouth - Victorious Festival
2nd Salisbury - End of the Road Festival
3rd Portmeirion - Festival No. 6
22nd Nottingham Bodega
23rd Bristol Louisiana
24th Liverpool Studio 2
26th Newcastle Think Tank
27th Glasgow Hug and Pint
28th Sheffield - The Harley
29th Leeds Oporto
30th Manchester Soup Kitchen
1st Birmingham - The Rainbow
3rd Brighton Patterns
4th London - The Dome
