For those of you who were at the Northcote Social Club last Friday – feel free to skip the words and jump straight to the listening of the music. For those who weren’t.. listen up!
Oscar + Martin are two Melbournian hipsters wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Their debut album ‘For You’ is a beautiful manuscript for a movie – a romantic flick with a kickass soundtrack! However, Oscar Slorach-Thorn and Martin King haven’t always produced fluttery exultant R&B re-creations – their first project Psuche was much a much deeper composition similar to Avey Tare and Panda Bear. Having supported acts like Caribou, Four Tet and Coco Rosie, their live show contains a blend of analogue keyboards, tape loops, toy instruments and percussion.
I would say the sky is the limit for these two alt-pop Melbournians, but I’m pretty sure even the sky won’t restrict their musical success.
