Oxford Drama – Fluctuations EP

When I wrote about Oxford Drama in May last year, it was obvious that this duo has the potential to reach a broader audience with their charming sound. And although this process may not have been happening as rapidly for them as in the case of The Dumplings, a fellow Polish wonderkids band, the pair did start to tour the country, support notable artists (Trust or Taylor McFerrin) and appear on the national radio stations. The fact that their fanbase has not been increased by tens of thousands of people has actually turned out to be a blessing as it allowed the intimacy in their music to remain untouched.

Now Gosia Dryjanska and Marcin Mrowka are back with a new EP called Fluctuations which is their first ever official release. It is out digitally on Brennnessel Records and bearing in mind that this label has been founded by the members of Kamp! and it gathers the most outstanding electronic music artists from Poland, this is exactly the place where they should be.

Oxford Drama – Oxford Drama EP

Do you remember what fuss was caused by a discovery of Polish duo The Dumplings? OSOM was one of the very first sites to feature those talented youngsters at the end of September last year and now they are in the middle of the sold out tour, have been played by a London radio and are about to release their debut album on a major label.

But it turns out that Poland has even more to offer. Oxford Drama are a Wrocław-based fantastic boy/girl duo that deserves more recognition. Their first ever release – a self-titled EP – was published a month ago and in three of four tracks it presents a dreamy sound that reminds me of former songs from another great Polish band Őszibarack. But for me the absolute highlight of Oxford Drama EP is Endeavour, a composition less calming yet with amazing alternative beat. Can’t wait to hear what this guys will come up with next!
