January 8, 2020, Vienna-based indie pop singer and songwriter OSKA releases her debut EP Honeymoon Phase, where she recalls her past and reflects on the various stages of her young life. OSKA’s songs are slightly dimmed but never completely sinister as her sensitive singer-songwriter pop immediately casts a spell over her listeners.
OSKA recently won the coveted XA – Music Export Award at Vienna’s 2020 Waves Festival. This annual award was initiated by Waves Festival in 2017 and is a cooperation between music Austria, Austrian Music Export, Radio FM4 and Waves Festival.
Growing up in a small village in Lower Austria, OSKA moved to Vienna at 18 to study her first love; music. Born into a family of singers and musicians, she discovered her voice at a young age. In Vienna, she started busking in streets and squares of the capital while also studying pop and jazz singing. She has worked tirelessly drafting and crafting her imminent debut, honing her voice to say exactly what she wants it to. After years in the background supporting and featuring for different artists, OSKA released “Distant Universe” earlier this year, and soon after, signed to Nettwerk.
