In 2015 Oscar confidently solidified the hype and critical acclaim surrounding his previous endeavours with a new EP and string of UK support dates. His second EP Altruism brought the powerhouse vocal and production marriage that fans and critics adored from previous releases. Filled with radio ear candy and experimental electronica, Altruism demonstrated a cohesion and progression in Oscar’s unique explorative world. The signatures of Key Sung— its panoptic production and lyrical exposition— are underscored on Altruism, deepening Key Sung’s sense of conflict; its glacial beauty and modern dread. “Key Sung is locked in tension” Oscar says finally, “but that’s what makes it work.”
Key Sung’s diligence in maintaining a captivating and high quality output was met with a UK support tour alongside London 3-piece and 2015 BBC British Artist of the Year nominees – Years & Years. The tour would prove to legitimise Oscar Key Sung’s swelling Australian profile into a realm of international accolades and success.
