NEW MUSIC: OSCAR JEROME - GRAVITATE
03 Jun 2019
Oscar Jerome just shared a new single!
Fresh off the back of a run of UK dates supporting Kamasi Washington and an Annie Mac Presents show with IAMDDB at Jazz Cafe, Oscar Jerome is today sharing his latest single ‘Gravitate’ – the South London artist’s first release since signing to Caroline International – as well as news of a lengthy European tour later this year that will culminate in his biggest headliner to date at London’s Heaven. Taking inspiration from the sounds of British broken beat and featuring Joe Armon-Jones on piano and several of his fellow band-members in afrobeat ensemble Kokoroko, ‘Gravitate’ arrives alongside a video of Oscar and his current band of collaborators performing the track live in the studio. You can check out the video here:
Oscar says of the track: “This pays homage to a lot of the pioneers of the British broken beats genre as well as a lot of my soul, jazz and rock influences. The subject matter is both cosmic and personal. I reference a lot of imagery of the early life of a star in space as well as ideas of individuality and self-acceptance.”
