Oscar Shares Music Video for “Good Things” + Debut Album Out May 13‏

On the eve of the release of his highly anticipated debut LP Cut and Paste, North Londoner Oscar shares the video for new single “Good Things” – WATCH HERE.

Shot by acclaimed director Bryan Schlam (who also worked with Oscar on the “Sometimes” video and has collaborated with Kendrick Lamar in the past), it is a brilliantly off-beat, surreal accompaniment to the track, in Oscar’s own words: “The song’s message is a positive one and so it seemed a good idea to contrast that nicely in the video with a Warhol-esque sequence of things going wrong! The little things in life that seem like failures have to be laughed at in order to move on and to see all the good things!”

Contrasting with the fizzing pop buzz of “Sometimes” and the low slung swagger of “Breaking My Phone“, “Good Things” shows yet another side to Oscar: softer, sweeter, but no less infectious, it’s just another reason why Oscar is set to be one of the brightest new stars in the British music firmament, and why Cut and Paste is undeniably going to be one of the albums of the summer.
