Latitude 2015

Oscar spring their sugar-coated pop into action at Latitude 2015

The movers and groovers gather in force for Oscar’s Latitude debut.

Taking to an open stage in broad daylight, Oscar bring the festival’s energy to life. Leaving young kids squealing with delight, adults swaying to every beat, and teenagers strutting their stuff front and centre, the band make a mark that’s truly unrivalled.

“This is Oscar - all of us,” frontman Oscar Scheller introduces. “It’s our first time at Latitude.” Newcomers they may be, but the band’s performance is as tight as any seasoned professionals. Glee plastered across their faces, the group power through a set of their deliciously sugar-coated pop hits.

When the beat kicks in, so do the fun and frolics. From the all-out dancing by the stage barrier, to the guy waving a ripped off trouser leg above his head, the energy doesn’t fade for a moment. Extravagant dance moves collide with excited cheers as Oscar tear through a seamless performance.

Recent EP tracks ‘Beautiful Words’ and ‘Daffodil Days’ have those gathered waving limbs in the air like they really have no other cares, whilst the energetic favourite ‘Sometimes’ showcases the group at their most vigorously dynamic. To passers by, it’s a madhouse, but for those present, it’s something entirely more potent.

“You try to forget me, but you can’t,” the group croon on ‘Whistling’. Taking this set as a clear indication, this isn’t a band anyone will be letting fade from memory any time soon.
