SPEELBURG RELEASES “OXY COTTON CANDY”
“Speelburg...is a force to be reckoned with.” - Pigeons & Planes
Just in time for the 4th of July Speelburg has released his cheeky yet cheery song of the summer ‘Oxy Cotton Candy.” The Belgian-American Brighton, UK based artist spent the last two years making “pop music for important people,” and "Oxy Cotton Candy” is the first single from the body of work created in those sessions. These new songs are a departure from his previous releases, offering a sunnier musical disposition that puts a spotlight on Speelburg mastermind Noah Sacré’s sharp wit and unique sense of humor. The track is fantastically intricate and slyly brilliant, drawing listeners into Speelburg’s pleasantly oddball world with jangly hooks and effervescent choruses.
“..... that killer falsetto, playfully arranged guitars and synths and melodies that can evoke Connan Mockasin one moment, and Father John Misty or ‘The Bay’-era Metronomy the next.”
- VICE on "Screener Season”(the last single)
When choosing a name for the project, Sacré, who has a deep love of cinema, decided that if he was going to be a creative and put those creations out into the world he should set the bar high. So he aimed for genius level, naming the project Speelburg, to keep a nice and slightly uncomfortable level of pressure oh his shoulders, in the hopes that someday he will live up to the name. Speelburg’s oddball view of the world makes its way into all of his work from his songs named after famous people like “Gwyneth Paltrow” and song titles like “Oxy Cotton Candy,” that Sacré feels encapsulates the vibe of these new songs: “absurd weird and fun,” says Sacré “like there’s something off-kilter about it but it’s still disco-y and danceable.”
Speelburg’s music has been championed by tastemakers such as Pigeons and Planes, Indie Shuffle, Clash Music, Vice, DIY Magazine, BBC Radio 1’s Phil Target, Annie Mac and Clara Amfo, KCRW’s Jason Kramer and Apple’s Zane Lowe. Collectively Speelburg’s music has been streamed over 8 million times and counting.
