20-year-old multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Oscar Lang has released “Antidote to Being Bored” – CLICK HERE to listen.
Alongside the new single, Lang has announced that Antidote to Being Bored – which will be his third EP of 2020 – will be released on December 4 via Dirty Hit.
Fueled by wobbly synths and jangly guitars, the psychedelic folk-rock sound of “Antidote To Being Bored” intensifies Oscar’s transition from scuzzy, self-recorded experimentation towards fuller, warped and shimmering landscapes of noise. Referred to as “Brian Wilson for Gen-Z” for his retro approach to songwriting, Lang’s efforts to encapsulate the sound of being a teenager combines laid-back and drifting indie rock chill with the menacing intensity and angst of the 1990s.
Lang admits: “I wrote Antidote to Being Bored to be an absolute blow the roof off stadium rock banger and I think it lives up to that. I wanted to get a little darker with this EP, while continuing the sound of the previous one. I feel like I really found a style of music that I love and am just excited to play. So, this release was all about developing that sound further.”
