South London singer-songwriter Oscar Jerome has released his new single, “Misty Head / Sunny Street” today. The new track arrives after a busy 2018 that saw Oscar sell out 700+ capacity venues, tour both sides of the Atlantic and pick up an ever-growing international reputation. Keeping up that momentum, and with a new single in tow, Oscar will be embarking on a short European tour in Feb and travelling back to the States in March for SXSW. 

To say that Jerome had a restless 2018 would be an understatement. One of the capital's finest purveyors of soulful jazzy vibes, Jerome has been busy getting playlisted and tipped by the likes of 6 Music, 1Xtra and Boiler Room, selling out London's Village Underground and touring consistently - recently playing a run of shows in the US and further cementing his fast-growing international audience.

“Misty Head / Sunny Street” dines on an influence of jazz, funk and hip-hop but is delivered with the songwriter’s signature lo-fi grit. Driven by a warped Thundercat-esque bassline, the track rides an intoxicating groove as Jerome’s lysergic guitars and impassioned vocals serenade above a warm bed of technicolour synth hues. Talking about the track, he says: “This ones a little funky number I wrote when in a confused but happy state. I have to give a shout out to Maxwell Owin for helping with the production on this too, one of my best friends and favourite music makers.” 

“Misty Head / Sunny Street” is the latest addition to a vibrant back-catalogue that’s unquestionably marked Jerome out as a tour de force in the burgeoning London jazz scene. It arrives after 2018’s Where Are Your Branches? EP and the follow-up single ‘Do You Really’ - both of which building on the critical acclaim of his debut self-titled EP released back in 2016. If last year was anything to go by then you’d be pretty safe betting on 2019 being the year of Oscar Jerome - this new single offering an assured and hopeful taste of what’s to come.
