This week's hottest brand new act is fresh Dirty Hit signing Oscar Lang.
KEY TRACK: Trash
LABEL: Dirty Hit
MANAGEMENT: SB Management
WHO: Meet Dirty Hit’s new signing...
WHAT: Super-chilled indie-pop bursting with the magical energy of youth. New EP Bops Etc (yes, that’s the title) shows Oscar Lang’s penchant for a wavey guitar solo, too.
WHERE: This talented 18-year-old is from West London.
ANOTHER FRESH FACE ON DIRTY HIT?
Oh yes. Lang released Bops Etc as his last year at school ended, celebrating with a show at Thousand Island in the capital. Chess Club cherub Alfie Templeman features on his EP, too. Let’s see if the pair can spearhead a new wave of bedroom musicians.
WHAT’S THE MUSIC LIKE?
Bops Etc jingles and jangles, with guitar licks weaving between Lang’s vocals. Highlight Trash riffs on watching cartoons and smoking joints, using time-honoured indie misery to add credibility to its lackadaisical vibe.
That’s the spirit. Watch Oscar Lang sing through his blonde curtains at Green Man Festival in August.
