Oscar Key Sung announces a new album and tour

Arguably Australia’s most gorgeous up and coming singer and producer, Oscar Key Sung has announced that he will release his second EP, Altruism on May 1. The EP features lead track Premonition and contains his new single, Skip. He will also be commencing a tour of Australia on June 17. Thank god, it would have been a cold winter without him.

Oscar Key Sung has been leaving crowds breathless since he started producing music in 2011, and went on to release his first EP in 2014, Holograms.

He uses an experimental approach to composition, stripping music right back to the basic elements and rebuilding it to create a sound that is chilled, sexy and totally unique. Taking influence from a plethora of different sources, OKS incorporates old school R&B and contemporary pop music simultaneously.

“It’s a bit of a mess,” he says. “I suppose I’m just a part of this generation of oversaturation, where it’s easy to be as influenced by Arvo Pärt as you are by Drake.”

It may be a mess, but Key Sung’s glorious hybrid of lyrical exposition and sparse, paired back percussion has won the hearts of many. He’s collaborated with Andras, Banoffee, Cassius Select and more, as well as touring clubs and festivals in Europe, the US and Japan.

If you haven’t seen him live yet, please do. He is fucking stunning. Oh and his music’s okay too 😉
