Refreshing, direct honesty and healthy expression is something that’s always needed. Oscar The Wild has loads of it, all neatly intertwined within their own sweet and bubbly brand of Australian grunge and indie pop. 

 

Forming from sisterhoods and best friendships in 2018, the Adelaide quartet quickly began drawing attention playing local festivals, to then share stages with the likes of Middle Kids, Gang of Youths and Spacey Jane. Only a year after forming, Oscar The Wild were already performing at festivals such as Our Place, Swirl Fest and St Jerome’s Laneway Festival. Having a clear proclivity for live shows, the band was nominated for the best live act in South Australia that same year. 

 

Despite limited live performances in 2020 and 2021, Oscar The Wild's momentum remained unyielding, securing support from triple j’s Home & Hosed, triple j Unearthed and Spotify playlists including 'Fresh Finds AU & NZ' and 'Local Noise'. Following the pandemic, they continued to surge ahead, chosen to play at the 2022 VALO Adelaide 500, supporting US giants, The Killers.

 

In 2023, the good times continued for the band, maintaining a presence on triple j and Unearthed, with ‘Pinch Me Please’ selected as Unearthed Track of the Day ahead of the band’s stint as Unearthed Feature Artist. This recognition has undoubtedly bolstered Oscar The Wild's popularity across the country, resulting in a combined 30,000 organic streams on Spotify, and counting.

 

Follow up single ‘Unafraid’ earned the band a slot at BIGSOUND 2023 where they showcased their immersive and authentically joyous live set to packed out rooms all week. The band were highlighted as Ones To Watch at BIGSOUND by The Music and lauded as one of the absolute festival highlights by none other than Rolling Stone USA writer, Brittany Spanos.

 

Oscar The Wild’s commitment to being part of communities and even forming some themselves through music is not only deep and genuine; but necessary. Their music has laid the foundation for something truly special to build in the not-too-distant future, like a powder keg linked to dynamite. For Oscar The Wild though, accolades are secondary. The journey to feel something is primary.
