Single Review – Osca – Trumpet

Osca have released their debut EP Blood this week and along with that they released the lead single ‘Trumpet’. The track is an open, minimalistic and spacious affair. With long periods of sole, echoed vocals, subtle and muted drum beats, whirring effects and gentle acoustic riffs. These elements ever so subtly build up in sound in a gradual rise before fading into synths washes and vocal sweeps that extend and enhance the atmospheric quality of the song. The song never sacrifices style or refinement for the need to grab a cheap musical thrill and the song is all the better for it, while style fluctuating and progressing within itself.
