Oscar Mbo Releases The ‘Life & Love’ EP
After announcing earlier this year that he will be releasing an EP and album this year, every fan of Oscar Mbo was ecstatic and couldn’t wait. The Big O has finally delivered with a 3 track EP entitled Life & Love which will be subsequently followed by his debut album. Life & Love is the perfect prelude for an album. The mood for the EP is set with the first song entitled ZAR ft Yuri September: a song dominated by amazing variations of synths and Yuri’s soft yet beautiful vocals blending in on the beat and some marimba drums here and there. ZAR is my personal favourite and definitely a party starter.
The second song is a 7 minute long track entitled Life & Love in which Oscar Mbo flexes his production skills with subtle lead guitar and dominating piano progressions which fall perfectly in place and you find yourself playing an invisible piano while sing along the simple yet catchy lyrics. For the brave is the last song on the EP, another phenomenally produced song with a variation in sounds with a lot of electronic influences (kinda reminds me a bit of Daft Punk). All in all what a beautiful EP one can’t wait for the album. Indulge yourself as we patiently wait for the full body of work.
