Oscar Feels The Christmas Spirit With Yuletide Track ‘It’s Christmas Again’ – Video Premiere

Wichita tall-man Oscar is probably the least Christmassy person in London indie at present, but that hasn’t stopped him from having a crack at joining The Killers, Phoenix, Palma Violets and a fair few others in the Yuletide madness that seems to be taking over December 2015.

His track ‘It’s Christmas Again’ is a somewhat sullen affair, weighty with the same air of despondency that made Jona Lewie’s ‘Stop The Cavalry’ so decent. The chorus sounds a little like ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’, too, randomly.

Here’s Oscar in Queen’s speech mode talking about it:

“This song goes out to everyone who’s ever felt alone or like there’s something/someone missing for them around this time of year. I’ve had quite varied Christmases in my life and so really I poured them all into this song. I hope you have a good one. Love Oscar xx”
