Weird Times – [Oscar Welsh]

If you are in need of a new quarantine anthem and looking to tap into those uncertain, lonely feelings while stuck inside alone in these weird times, I suggest  Oscar Welsh’s “Weird Times.”

Making his LL debut, the teenage crooner (who hails from Suffolk, UK) has a powerful track on his hands. Though it definitely evokes some melancholic energy–with his light, emotional crooning, and a  home-grown, nostalgic VCR-tinted video– there’s still light, breezy glimmers to the board work. The strings and brushstrokes of gloss on the production side, push “Weird Times” into a pop space to create a bittersweet feel; the perfect touches of warmth and sadness.
