The head of music for londonfm.digital said he loved the new single ‘Forever’ from ‘Osca Hao’ with it’s sonic, screeching, melodic guitars and heartfelt warm and strong vocals with a Jeff Buckley esque vibe that takes you on a wonderful melodic rock journey and sticks in your heart and head like a classic ballad. The single is now on the playlist and will be played 2-3 times a day in general rotation + as a daily powerplay at 1:35 PM everyday for a month or more.
Osca Hao started with guitar, saxophone and the drum-kit at 11 years old, whilst attending King Edward VI school. The British-born musician felt that no individual instrument has any sort of superiority, which led to him to an interest in the Soundtrack genre. Here, he is able to fuse an array of themes in his artwork, such as the Western Classical Era, the technological revolution and Asian sentiment. His music initially was regarded as being part of the New Wave Instrumental genre, but his releases “Being Blue” and “Something To Smile About” show the need to break free from categorisations – something he believes soundtracks teach us all. Heavily influenced by British Rock, Hip-hop, EDM and Carnatic music throughout the years, it is unclear if this, definitely abstract, musical illustration will ever come to rest. His philosophical overtones are entirely captured in the quote:
“Without music, life would be a mistake.” – Friedrich Nietzsche, (Twilight of the Idols).
