Following on from her high-profile debut track Money including Spotify’s New Music Friday UK plus support from BBC Introducing, Alt-Pop artist Oz releases her follow-up single Murder, a provocative title for a larger-than-life force of personality.
In contrast to the headstrong Money, the new single is more reflective as it uncompromisingly examines a snapshot from Oz’ past tackling a relationship characterised by an uncomfortable imbalance of power. He was a little older and a lot cooler, but also an aggressive drunk.
Oz Describes Destructive Relationship That Inspired Murder
Oz says of the track, “It’s a song about the moment it really hits you that someone’s trash and they’re bad for you, but I learned a lot about myself from writing the song, because I got through it and I was tough.”
Murder is released alongside a visual, which was made up from stock footage on the internet “to have the feel of a broken romance meets spaghetti western,” explains Oz.
Both Murder and Money provide a taste of Oz’s forthcoming debut EP. Set to be released on Truth Records, it’s an attitude-rich assertion of empowerment, truth and self-discovery that spans the darker extremes of modern alt-pop, throwback alt-rock and dynamic electronica.
