Over the last five years or so, UK artist Oska Zaky has been establishing his thoughtful brand of electronic pop, and fleshing out his unique sonic world with a slew of considered and memorable releases.

The latest of which is the new single ‘Plastic’, a melancholy single about feeling lost in a relationship and losing yourself. There is an endearing and vulnerable nature to the sparse instrumental that is anchored around Oska’s guitar, his vocals and some slick, understated beats. ‘Plastic’ is a track that feels captivating throughout, narrative heavy and carrying an intense sense of gravity that grows in disconnect as is develops and becomes more obscured and distorted. There is a lot to unpack here, and the more that you dig in and lose yourself within the track, the more little sonic quirks and clever moments you seem to find. A great release from a talent who seems to be growing in stature and confidence as time goes on.

“I think a lot of people can relate to losing yourself in a relationship especially during those Covid days.” Oska says of the track. “My body & mind fell limp and just went with the flow. I felt like I had no control over what life was doing to me. I couldn’t see a way out”
