To celebrate his new deal with Witchita, North London baritone Oscar has shared his latest single, "Daffodil Days." It's a swelling indie rock pick-me-up that was born out of a serendipitous autocorrect. "It all started out on one of those dark winter evenings, when everything felt wrong. I was having a pretty bad day and as I was texting a friend, the word 'difficult' turned to 'daffodil' by a stroke of autocorrect genius. It really made me laugh and somehow made a lot of a sense," he tells FADER. "The song represents that day for me. The melancholy in knowing that it won't work but that there is always hope and future, of the Daffodil Days ahead. Something which is easily forgotten," he adds. In other words, it's perfect escape from a dark, winter day like today.
