After a run of fantastic features and collaborations, Oscar #Worldpeace drops striking solo single ‘Never Know’.
Oscar #Worldpeace has always been an artist for which blanket statements about his work will simply not suffice. His capacity for varied forms of creation results in differing sounds and themes often being present in his work. Having given his talents to a variety of collaborations, including his contributions to celebrated collective ‘MINIKINGZ’, he gives us ‘Never Know’ as his first solo drop of the year.
Production-wise, ‘Never Know’ is infectious in its instrumentation. Repeated piano melodies and string riffs articulate a feeling of contemplation and curiosity. When discussing the verses in this track, Oscar explained;
“’Never Know’ is a song open to interpretation. Personally, it’s about the duality of love. Positive and negative. Fear and happiness, but ultimately keeping safe during the process."
The ambiguity of this song leaves a contemplative impression on the listener. It’s commendable in it discussing multiple topics, whilst maintaining a through-line of similar emotions. If looking for an overall takeaway message of this song, it is seemingly that some paranoia can be a necessity in keeping you and your family safe. Oscar has included his family across some of his previous work and his social media presence. It seems to be one of his biggest sources of inspiration for his music. In listening to Oscar #Worldpeace you feel as though you gain an understanding into him and his life, making his music possess great reliability.
