Bio

Since their inception in early 2018, Oscar the Wild have played their way into the hearts of punters around Adelaide. Quickly making a name for themselves, these four have had three massive years together and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Their eclectic bubblegrunge sound, influenced by jazz, rock and punk, has struck a chord with people in their home town, as has their larger than life stage presence.

In 2020 and 2021, they have taken the time to refine their sound musically and their voice politically. On the back of their 2020 release 'My Daisy', they are excited to release their favourite, most personal song yet, 'AAA' in mid-2021.

Unrelated to batteries, the acronym stands for Anatomy and Autonomy. Through crunchy chords, playful guitar riffs and swirly vocals, this song poses the double-barrelled question; do we truly have independence over our bodies and do our different parts dictate how much of it we have?

this is so cleverly arranged. it moves from verse to chorus to verse, bringing a different mood to each, but all the while sounding so compatible and effortless. there's a lot to love.

this is glorious stuff - it's got heart and muscle and has a bit of an x factor, free range type feel. i'm stoked to hear this one today!

Giving Oscar The Wild an all access pass to my playlist after this emphatic indie rock track.
