I received an email telling me Fred Oskar had a new single, with a link to check it out. One of the interesting parts of email was being informed that not only did I know of Fred Oskar, but I already 'his' music in my collection. It seems the artist currently known as 'Fred Oskar' is also the artist formerly known as 'Simon Walton'. Walton had a great single, "The Lover", which featured a great collaboration with rapper Loco Ninja. That was a wonderful collaboration of two out and proud artists. I really enjoyed Walton's 2011 release, 'Proud Music', but haven't heard much from him for the last year. I guess I know why now. Simon Walton is no more, and Fred Oskar is releasing new music and a music video, as the pictures above and below can attest.
Fred Oskar released "Just A Haircut", an ElectroPop ditty featuring Fred Oskar discussing his dating life. It seems there is a cute boy he likes, but upon closer examination, he's just a boy with a great haircut and sweet t-shirt. Honestly, I met plenty of those boys back in the 1980s. As well as the single, Oskar has released a new music video. In it, Fred sings with himself, or at least a feminine version of himself. As they both strip back the layers of the dating game, we are soon left with the realization that the sexually charged arena of dating does take more than cute to win your heart. Enjoy the video for "Just A Haircut".
