October 1, 2022 BY Danielle Romeo

Today, Vienna-based indie-pop singer and songwriter OSKA releases her new EP It’s Normal To Shiver, which features soulful and stirring live versions of songs from her acclaimed debut album My world, My love, Paris, which painted a picture of a young woman trying to make sense of growing older in an increasingly uncertain era. Oska has been on the road for most of 2022, making her Great Escape debut, and supporting Stu Larsen, Haevn, and most recently, Tom Odell. Dates are listed below.

Growing up in a small village in Lower Austria, OSKA moved to Vienna at 18 to study her first love; music. She started busking in streets and squares of the capital while also studying pop and jazz singing. She signed to Nettwerk in 2020 and released her debut EP Honeymoon Phase to critical acclaim. The five songs on the album have amassed more than 4 million Spotify streams and won her the XA Music Export Award at Waves Vienna Festival 2020, and most recently won the Amadeus Austrian Music Award for “Best Sound”. She followed the EP with her debut album, My World, My Love, Paris, comprised of 12 songs that see OSKA weave together tales of her family life and the experience of being a young person growing up in the world. With candor and charm, her authentic self comes through in honest lyricism and tender melodies.

“OSKA has a special talent for bittersweet yearning poeticism…” – Under the Radar 

“A creative spirit influenced by the human experience and relationships and determined to inspire listeners through poetic verse and beautiful melodies alike.” – Atwood

“the track is a deeply personal exploration of her inner thoughts, there is the underlying sense that everyone can relate to OSKA’s melancholic disposition.” – COLLiDE

“The dream-folk approach is both lush and cinematic, swaying like a kite in the turbulent wind… The young woman is a talent to watch.” -The Revue
