Clip :: Oscar + Martin, ‘Recognise’
April 18th 2011

Melbourne cuties Oscar+Martin sure are charming our listeners with For You, their debut full-length release and our current Album of the Week. The boys combine an easy, breezy pop sensibility with some heavier hip hop-ish hooks, then wrap it all up with indie idiosyncrasies for extra street cred.
In their clip for the first single 'Recognise' the boys show off this catchy blend of cool and cute. They stroll the pre-dawn Melbourne streets looking fly in their Timberlands and hoodies. They almost look thug, but carrying toy pianos really undercuts your swagger. They win back some bad-ass bonus points with some long-necks and mild pyromania, but the track's glitchy sweetness makes this track more pretty than punk. Watch this space for an upcoming Q&A with these guys, and get ready to hit your repeat button.
