Oscar Lang has shared his new single ‘Everything Unspoken’.
The songwriter’s new album ‘Look Now’ lands on July 21st via Dirty Hit, and it follows the acclaim lavished on his debut. Clash went deep with Oscar Lang during the making of his first LP, exploring his methods in-depth – find it in our archive.
New single ‘Everything Unspoken’ is a dreamy return, a sign of his expanding ambitions. Channelling prime Here We Go Magic, the song yearns for confidence, with the lyrics picking apart social anxiety.
Perhaps that explains the directness, the forceful energy and the crisp chorus – Oscar Lang introduces his new song…
“This stems out of the social anxiety thing I have. I’m very shy and not very forward and good at talking to people, and it spawned out of me going through that break-up and then being out in the world and being single again. It’s about when you wish you had the confidence ‘I really like you, we should do this’, when you can sense it, but you just never do.”
“It’s inspired by Here We Go Magic – I really wanted to write a song like them for ages. There was a deliberate and conscious step on this album to have my vocals be swamped more in effects because when I make tracks at home, I always want my vocals in loads of effects. I love the vocals on this track.”
Tune in now.
