In The Spotlight

Oscar Lang – “Are You Happy?”

Born into music to a dad who used to be the drummer of The Housemartins and a singing mom, this London-based singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist began writing music aged 11, but took it seriously at 16. Playing piano, drums, bass and guitar, he writes all music and lyrics and self-produces his songs as well as writing for others. He debuted with his EP “Teenage Hurt” in 2018.

Written for a friend who was going through a rough time, his new single is a retro-touched blend of bubblegum pop and joyous indie synths. Taken from his upcoming debut full-length album “Chew The Scenery”, expected on July 16, it’s the sun-soaked melody of singing electronic guitars, cheery rhythm and vintage-styled vocals coming together in a breezy, yet buzzing jam that will make you very happy.

Kara Connolly – “Something More”

Hailing from San Diego, this singer and songwriter grew up on the disco music of her dad and the sounds of NSYNC and Madonna. She organically started writing songs at a very young age. Also an actress, she first appeared in the 2002 movie “Whiplash” with Ernest Borgnine aged 7. She debuted with “Life In Rear View” in 2018 and played the famed Peppermint Club and The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles.

Constructed from rich multi-layered instrumentation and relatable storytelling, her new single is coated in 90’s-styled alternative pop opulence. Laying the foundation with a simple bass pluck and her luscious voice, it truly finds its feet when it comes to life in the feel-good chorus. Filled with various tasty melodic elements and delightful harmonies, this soaring groove leaves you wanting more.
