Oscar covers Gengahr’s ‘Heroine’

And it’s wonderful.

Today will forever be known as the day Gengahr took over DIY’s Instagram, took requests for drawings and then decided to Photoshop Rat Boy’s face onto an otter. On 21st October 2016, we’ll be celebrating Gengstagram Day, and then the same the following year, and then again into eternity.

But that’s not all - today’s also been livened up with a lovely Oscar cover of Gengahr’s ‘Heroine’. Oscar Scheller - currently at work on his debut album - brings a playful pop spin out of a hellraising original, turning it into a cuddly gem of a song.
