Having taken the leap from London to LA, we asked artist/producer Oscar Scheller to take us on a journey through a day in his life. And with today marking the release of his new single Oblivion; a notable Scheller pop-track peppered with profoundly relatable lyricism from his forthcoming album 'Coming of Age' (released 10th November on Handle With Care), he's been a busy lad!
Alongside seeing Scheller starting the day right with matcha and finishing it in style with some great restaurant recommendations (thanks, Oscar!) we also got the chance to find out about the album in it's sensory form, learn how manifestation plays a part in his life, and discover what he'd be making outside of music, and it sounds delicious...
LISTEN TO OSCAR SCHELLER
FW: If you had to assign a temperature, a colour and a taste to this album, what would they be?
OS: It’s the temperature of a sunny autumnal day with a cooling breeze, it’s the colour of a nectarine; warm yellows, reds and oranges. It tastes bittersweet like dark chocolate.
Start the day with matcha
FW: What are you hoping people will take from this album?
OS: The same thing I experienced when I heard bands like The Radio Dept. for the first time! I hope people will remember all the beautiful moments of their lives, however big or small, but also how they’ve grown from the pain and the change that comes alongside. I hope it helps people sleep, and helps people trust themselves more. I hope people love it as much as I do :)
Lay down some hot chords
FW: What genre could you see yourself experimenting with for a future project?
OS: This may come as a surprise to some but I’ve always had a huge love of R'n'B. I love writing it for other people so maybe that could seep into my own music in a future project?
FW: If you had to choose one component for a great album, what would it be?
Go to the studio to shred
FW: Go-to lunch on a studio/writing day?
Can’t forget to eat lunch! Canters Deli if you want a classic meal
FW: If you had to choose a new career completely outside of anything having to do with music, what would it be?
OS: I think I’d wanna be in an elephant sanctuary helping the elephants everyday. Or I’d make luxury chocolate bars.
Another session to finish music
FW: The world would be better without _____? The world would be worse without _____?
OS: The world would be better without social media. The world would be worse without art
Seeing my friend Makk Mikkael play a show
FW: Do you believe in manifestation?
OS: I really do! I’ve seen it change peoples lives. I’ve definitely used it myself by just really imagining the bigger picture.
Dinner with Daya. Osteria La Buca one of my favourite Italian spots
FW: What is your favourite F-word?
