Today’s release also marks Oscar’s return to releasing music, with his debut album, Cut And Paste, being his last release back in 2016 & 1UP’s meaningful lyrics & unique video adds context to where his head has been whilst pulling together his next batch of songs that will feature several collaborations including one with Shura.
Oscar explains “1UP is about having a second chance to start again and making it count. Whether that be a relationship, (with ourselves or others), a lifestyle or even just a philosophy you want to exercise. It's a celebration of re-birth, intention and progression. As I've experienced anxiety and depression, there are moments you feel like you just gotta get through the day, like life is a video game and you're a character trying to pass the level.”
“I knew it needed a rap verse on it, but more of an old school hip hop positive rap. I've known Sarah (Kero Kero Bonito) a long time and knew she'd be the perfect counterpart and often felt she was the voice of positivity, empathy and understanding. I hope it gives people a new lease of life and the strength to keep playing on!”
