:: Absolutely exquisite songs!


Osca is the exciting new indie-pop act from New Cross, London. Following debut single Blood, the foursome behind frontman and songwriter Jack Kenworthy has just released their debut EP of the same name.

Blood was released on November 17, 2014 via Duly Noted Records. The EP of four tracks is available as digital download from iTunes.

Trumpet is my favourite track from Blood, listen above. The EP is streaming in its entirety at Q Magazine. Head over and check it out, it’s a strongly recommended listen.

German producer Mazde – having done remixes for SOHN and Disclosure which gained millions of plays – did an epic remix of title track Blood which premiered two weeks ago via i-d Magazine, take a listen below.
