Two Bright Lakes and Wondercore Island are excited to present Oscar Key Sung live over 4 Thursdays in June at Melbourne’s new non-profit bar Shebeen in Manchester Lane.
Since exploding out of the Two Bright Lakes community as one half of Oscar + Martin in 2010, Oscar has received international acclaim for his refreshingly spacious productions, buoyant performances, and a sumptuous voice that harkens back to a classic lineage of heart-on-sleeve r ‘n’ b frontmen
Bringing in 2013 with perhaps his biggest breakthrough yet, Oscar Key Sung was handpicked by Mercury Music Prize-nominated mc Ghostpoet and Brooklyn-based artist MeLo-X to produce their debut release as MELOGHOST, ‘WecanWORKitout’. Quickly receiving over 44,000 plays and with further collaborations in the pipeline, Oscar’s latest single ‘WIMLTM’ recently clocked 20,000 plays with no associated promotional backing or performances.
Now receiving further spins and the tastemaking praise of BBC Radio 6 programmer Gilles Peterson, Oscar Key Sung is now set to bring his startling story to the international stage with two promotional singles ‘It’s Coming’ and ‘Sure Thing’, out now for free download at www.oscarkeysung.bandcamp.com

The ACCA Art Bar is back, bigger, brighter and better than ever.
We’re teaming up with ACCA to bring you sensational artists as part of their Art Bar series throughout 2013.
Join us on Friday 1 March, as we kick off our first ACCA Art Bar of the year.
Oscar Key Sung (of renowned Melbourne duo Oscar + Martin) will draw you in with his rich vocals, deep bass and honest words. Think soulful melodies over tape loops and beats. The result is nothing short of luscious, and with an album on the cards in 2013 catch him first, live at ACCA.
Oscar will be followed by long time music lovers and collectors, Two Bright Lakes DJs, who will finish off the ACCA Art Bar with diverse, danceworthy selections.
ACCA’s current exhibition Desire Lines will stay open until 7.30pm for an exclusive, extended viewing before it closes on 3 March.
Embrace the end of the week at the ACCA Art Bar.
