Listen to new single, 1%, where the cute meets cheeky meets the devastatingly addictive. The architects are the on-the-rise singer-songwriter-producer Oscar Scheller & one of Britain’s most successful female musicians of the last decade, Lily Allen.
The 1% single is Oscar Scheller’s lead single from his sophomore longplayer, titled HTTP404, which features a hefty plethora of talent from the UK, both established and upcoming talent. Expect a host of these collaborators on the record to also step-up on stage this week (12th) at his next London show including Kero Kero Bonito’s Sarah, Ashnikko, Havelock, Miraa May & Jevon to name but a few.
“I wrote this song after getting reaaaally lost in the suburbs of Stockholm on my way back from the studio cause my phone died” explains Scheller about a very relatable modern day problem most have experienced. Going deeper he explains “1% Physically or emotionally. It was inspired mostly by a conversation I was having with a girl who was taking ages to reply when I was on 1%. Then I made friends with Lily and thought she’d sound really good on it which she does ;)”
Besides pulling together his next chapter of music, Scheller’s also been busy writing and producing for others. Last week his latest production credit includes Brooke Candy’s collaboration featuring Charli XCX titled “XXXTC.” He’s also been writing with Mabel & Lily Allen, and more upcoming talents like Arlo Park, Jevon, Miraa May & Vera Hotsauce.
