LISTEN: OSKA Shares Acoustic Simplicity On Chilling “Hallucinating (It’s Normal to Shiver)”

Growing up in a small village in Lower Austria, OSKA moved to Vienna at 18 to study her first love; music. She started busking in the streets and squares of the capital while also studying pop and jazz singing. She signed to Nettwerk in 2020 and released her debut EP Honeymoon Phase.

Having a tastefully arranged string section accompanying a singer-songwriter is rarely a bad idea. OSKA went that route on her debut album My World, My Love, Paris, and loved the process so much that she wanted to do it all again for the world to see. The result is a special live recording of “Hallucinating (It’s Normal to Shiver)”, one of her songs off the aforementioned album. Without any overdubs or studio trickery, the intimate performance reminds us all of the beauty acoustic simplicity is capable of in an increasingly loud and tech-driven world. My World, My Love, Paris, was released earlier this year. 

“Ten years ago I had an accident. A surfboard ‘surfed’ into my face, and I hallucinated, which was a cool experience I have to say, but it has also kind of haunted me for years and left me with a scar on my cheek. This song is about that experience, and about the fear of, at some point, becoming paranoid because of it,” says Oska.
