June 17, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Indie pop singer and songwriter OSKA shares her new ethereal slow-jam “Crooked Teeth,” available at digital retailers tomorrow (June 18) HERE. The Vienna-based artist who was born into a family of singers and musicians wrote this song for her four older siblings, saying “They’ve all lost friends in tragic ways, and I’m only realizing now how hard that must have been. So, it’s about losing people and, along with them, the ability to be as carefree as we once were. It’s about wishing they were still here, and that we could still laugh like we used to – carefree laughs with carefree smiles, crooked teeth and all.”
“Crooked Teeth,” along with the previously released “Lousy T-Shirt,” will be featured on OSKA’s anticipated full-length debut album, details forthcoming.
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 has worked tirelessly drafting and crafting her imminent debut, honing her voice to say exactly what she wants it to. 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.
