On the heels of announcing his debut project earlier this month, South London artist Oogie returns to share the second offering from Somehow It Makes Sense, via Trapdoor Records. Sharp and colourful,”Drillers” is an infectious burst of energy that masterfully showcases Oogie’s knack for expressive wordplay.
The song is accompanied by a frenetic black-and-white visualizer and arrives after the lead single “Try“, which came paired with a hypnotic Henry Croston-directed video that acts an introduction to the community that’s centric to Oogie’s identity and the themes of his debut project.
Oogie spent the last year crafting Somehow It Makes Sense. A project born from anxiety, family, and self-love, Oogie’s debut is a painstakingly honest portrait of his life growing up in South London, and brings in a group of collaborators he both grew up alongside and connected with along the way, including the likes of another soulful South London artist in BINA, and the Birmingham-based Franklin Armstrong. Somehow It Makes Sense finds Oogie grappling with his past and present, anchored by his eclectic vocal style and intricate storytelling.
