OSKA is a talented Vienna-based singer-songwriter from a small village in Lower Austria. Not too long ago, she released a dreamy indie-pop tune, entitled, “Crooked Teeth.”
OSKA – “Crooked Teeth” single
“They’ve all lost friends in tragic ways, and I’m only realizing now how hard that must have been. So, it’s about losing people and, along with them, the ability to be as carefree as we once were. It’s about wishing they were still here, and that we could still laugh like we used to. Carefree laughs with carefree smiles, crooked teeth and all.” – OSKA explained
OSKA wrote “Crooked Teeth” for her four older siblings. The sentimental tune possesses guitar-driven instrumentation flavored with a dreamy indie-pop vibration. Furthermore, “Crooked Teeth” is the second song from OSKA’s forthcoming full-length debut album, also featuring her previously released single, “Lousy T-Shirt.” Details about the album will be announced soon.

“‘Lousy T-Shirt’ was written on a hot summer day last year in the aftermath of a break-up. It’s about what’s left behind after an experience like that and how the relationship itself doesn’t feel real to you at all anymore. When you look back, it feels more like you’re watching a movie and not like you actually lived it. Sometimes you might also feel like the other person is getting over everything much more easily, and that all that’s left is a t-shirt – a statement from my ex-boyfriend. It’s a very personal song that I wrote at a stage when I was really angry. After writing it, I wasn’t [angry] anymore. That’s the beauty of songwriting – you have such joy with the new track that you forget everything else. Sometimes that is what’s left after a relationship too: a lousy t-shirt and a song.” – OSKA explained
‘Lousy T-Shirt’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who recently broke up with her significant other. Apparently, she knows her former lover well enough to assume that he’s probably sleeping with someone new. Later, she admits that she lost all respect for him, and her past regrets are things she has to live with.
OSKA (currently signed to Nettwerk) moved to Vienna at the age of 18 to study her first love—music. During that time, she busked in the streets and squares of the capital while studying pop and jazz singing. Since then, she has worked tirelessly drafting and crafting her sound.
