Bio

Oscar the Wild have not slowed down since their inception in early 2018. The four girls have gigged relentlessly since becoming a band, making a name for themselves within the South Australian music scene. Their mix of indie-rock, indie-pop, punk with a splash of jazz has struck a chord with audiences in their hometown.

They've had a massive 2019 and are back in 2020 with their latest single 'Kiss Me Aphrodite,' and show no signs of slowing down.

They’ve scored festival slots in Adelaide’s own Stonecutters Festival, Swirlfest, Woolly Mammoth, Pirate Life’s A Day on the Cans, as well as scoring a slot on the girls rock! stage at triple j’s own Laneway Festival in 2019.

OSCAR THE WILD are
Ruby Gazzola - vocalist, rhythm guitarist, saxophonist, narcissist
Nicola Willsmore - lead guitarist
Anastasia Markou - bassist
Ariya Gabell - Drummer

Adelaide, the home of pie floaters, bung fritz, @shitadelaide instagram and now, Oscar the Wild.

Finding myself hopelessly loving this. Got some really charismatic pop/grunge/punk moments to love here. It's reminding me of Dream Wife who I'm a big fan of.

Love the way you strip it all back for the second verse before building back up to the big ending. A cracking dose grungy pop from this adelaide crew.

An emphatic "hey" right back at you. It sounds like you love The Beths as much as I do, ergo I now love your band.
