Rising South London artist Oscar Jerome introduces the newly titled track and lead single in celebration of the recently announced upcoming EP “Subdued”. Produced in part by Wu-Lu, Maxwell Owin and Oscar himself, the group has had the help from many collaborators that have found the single captivating.
Jerome speaks about his track to tell,
“I wanted to try and comment on the arrogance of our Western culture and certain people’s inability to view their existence as something much bigger than their own ego. I’m not going to point any fingers, take from it what you will.”
The single “Subdued” unquestionably isn’t something that you would stumble upon any day, everything about the music and the videography pair together unusually well. This is a mixture of genres that a lot of people aren’t used to hearing but should enjoy hearing much more often. Oscar Jerome does more than most artists do and a lot of that is incorporated in his style and the vision he had for the video. Not only will you be grooving to the empyrean jazzy beats and vocals, but you will start to feel the music through the imagery we get from the colors and the theme in the video.
