Indie-rockers Oswald are the latest Scottish band ready to hijack the Indie music scene and with Scottish predecessors such as Franz Ferdinand, Biffy Clyro and The Fratellis in the roll call, they've got some tough competition to overtake.
Their latest single, ‘Flying To The Ground' boasts a heavy bass line that permeates throughout the energetic track. Flying To The Ground also injects a little electro into the primarily indie track and the impulsive drum beat creates a sense of urgency that sparks a fear that it's all going to be over a little too soon.
The song, written by lead singer, Tom, juxtaposes an upbeat melody with powerfully emotional lyrics about lost souls and missed opportunities. Lyrics like "Don't cry for me ‘cause I'm not coming back" are given an extra dose of passion with Tom's vocals and leads you to a chilling end with the lyrics "Oh that shooting pain, as my spine begins to crack".
