18 year-old Londoner Oscar Lang has revealed his new single ‘Flowers’ on Dirty Hit.
The first new music from Lang since his heavily-supported debut EP bops etc. last year, ‘Flowers’ builds upon the sonic palette of that release, with an utterly infectious singalong chorus complimenting his sunny instrumentation and bounding rhythms.
Written and co-produced once more by Lang himself, ‘Flowers’ sets the tone for a much-anticipated new longer release later this year. Speaking about the track, Lang said, “‘Flowers’ is a new change in my sound that I’ve been waiting to make for a while. I finally get to record the songs I’ve been writing since I was 16 but never had the opportunity to go into a studio and do a full band recording of.”

Lang continues, “I wanted to blend a mix of the old Beatles-esque psychedelia and a modern sound, and it was a fun opportunity for me to scream all over a track.”
Oscar Lang released his self-produced EP bops etc. in June last year – his first release on Dirty Hit – and immediately drew praise from BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, Annie Mac and Huw Stephens as well as The FADER who premiered its lead single ‘Hey’ (ft. Alfie Templeman), and also included the track in their ‘18 best rock songs right now’ column.
The Line Of Best Fit made ‘Hey’ their ‘Song of the Day’, and NME & more rushed to praise the EP’s five inventive and thrilling new tracks as an antidote to the mundane.
Lang recently joined labelmates No Rome and Beabadoobee on the second ever Dirty Hit Tour in winter 2019, playing a slew of sold-out shows to adoring new audiences, culminating in an especially packed London show at the Tufnell Park Dome. Vice and NME both trailed the tour with the former hailing Lang’s set as “like a riotous school disco.”
