Hello caller: Oscar hangs up on technology in the ‘Breaking My Phone’ video

Oscar hangs up on technology in the ‘Breaking My Phone’ video

It’s raining phones, Hallelujah, it’s raining phones!

Oscar hangs up on technology in his new video for latest single ‘Breaking My Phone’.

After having a quick lean by a Nisa’s meal deal poster, he gets rid of his screen, and sets off on a walk about town. What dya know, everyone’s on their blimmin’ phones. And, just like Adele in her ‘Hello’ video, loads of them have - for whatever reason - got dated sliding models and flip phones. Touchscreens soon start hitting the gutter in quick succession once a stranger hands Oscar Scheller a guitar, and he starts playing a set in an East London phone shop.

The video lands right before Oscar heads out on a UK tour, with a string of DIY Presents dates across the country. Details below.
