Listen :: Oscar - Breaking My Phone
Words: Ellie Ward
Oscar Scheller debuted his new single ‘Breaking My Phone’ last week on Huw Stephens' Radio 1 show. The track, out on November 20 via Wichita, is the latest from the 22-year-old Londoner and follows his 'Beautiful Words' EP, released in June.
‘Breaking My Phone’, with a nod to Britpop, scratches a chugging bassline with jangly pop chords, and of course, his familiar baritone, in a chilled ode to lovelorn frustration and shattered mobile screens.
Over in the US for a run of dates, including CMJ, Oscar returns to the UK for a short tour next month.
