Après la sortie remarquée en 2015 de son EP Beautiful Words, le londonien de 22 ans se prépare à sortir le 13 mai prochain son tout premier album, le très attendu ‘Cut and Paste‘ sur Wichita Recordings.
Oscar a mis toute son énergie indie pop dans l’élaboration de ce nouveau projet. Les singles ‘Breaking My Phone’ ou encore ‘Sometimes’ sont la preuve que le jeune homme, dont la culture musicale s’étire de Satie à Kurt Cobain, donne tout ce qu’il a dans ses compositions. Sur Cut and Paste les multiples influences d’Oscar Scheller se trouvent parfaitement unifiées par sa superbe voix de baryton et son sens de la mélodie.
L’album, mixé par Ben Baptie (Adele, Mark Ronson, Lianne La Havas…) après avoir été enregistré quasiment uniquement chez Oscar, s’annonce comme un des nouveaux classiques de l’excentrisme de la pop anglaise!

English

With just a guitar and Logic Express, Oscar has self-produced a prodigious number of bedroom-recorded laptop pop songs over the past year. The 23 year old North London art school dropout self-released his first single in April 2013 before signing to the legendary British indie Wichita Records where he officially released “Daffodil Days” on March 10th.

Realizing his rich baritone voice was the perfect tool, Oscar developed his soulful croon influenced by Ricky Nelson and Buddy Holly and mixed it with gritty 90s East Coast hip hop – Buckwild, Erik B and Rakim, and Lord Finesse. Music became Oscar’s coping mechanism for the sad things that have happened in his life, a way to shake off despondency, lending all his music its bitter-sweet mood. But when you have a brain that counts Duchamp, Andy Warhol, his old art teacher and Erik Satie as heroes – that melancholy is expressed in the most magnetic and original way.
