Oscar - Daffodil Days

Newly signed to Wichita, who are on a good run of form as far as obtuse solo auteurs are going, young Londoner Oscar Scheller possesses a rich baritone that's somewhere between Magnetic Fields' Stephen Merritt and the soulish gravel of Sean Rowe. Musically he's somewhere in between too but leaning more towards the former's synth-aided melodic formality, favouring a poised emotional release that explodes into a big pop melody chorus that just about restrains itself from taking off too unduly. Single out 1st March.
