Oscar Scheller - Guitar Pop Musician - Biography

oscar

Oscar Scheller, a product of the 90s, started making sense of the world through off- kilter pop musings in the early hours of NYE 2013. This naturally led to making music under the moniker ‘Oscar’.

Classically trained, but unable to read music, he learnt everything by ear and started writing from the age of 13 and it never stopped.

As an avid record collector and art school graduate, Oscar’s influences are wide ranging, and playful. He draws influence from Buddy Holly to Big L, Lionel Bart to Nirvana.

Whilst studying a Fine Art degree at Central Saint Martins, he self-released ‘Never Told You’ in April 2013, unexpectedly whipping up a frenzy on the internet. This garnered the attention of NME, got best new music on Pitchfork and was featured in The Guardian’s New Band Of The Day.

Straight after graduating in May 2014, he began to hone in on writing ‘unabashed personal pop’ and released his 146b EP (recorded in his home studio) on Brown Rice/Smalltown Supersound. It was a scratchy, lo-fi bedroom guitar pop affair, a mix of 50s love songs and Britpop attitude featuring one hell of a synthesiser! The EP got support from critically acclaimed blogs like Impose, Dummy and Stereogum, as well as extensive radio play from BBC 6 Music, Absolute Radio and Resonance FM.

Most of his material is romantic, and some have described it as ‘criminally catchy’ but most of all it’s feel good. There is an old fashioned sense to the songs, putting the art of songwriting first, and addressing style later.

The music ranges from hip-hop to punk, grunge, to lovelorn melancholic pop. Genre is a playing field to Oscar, certainly not a limitation. Texturally it is the mixture of rough and smooth that he works in, but mainly the love of good simple melody and pop structure.
