oogie Releases Debut Project

Today, South London artist oogie releases his debut project, somehow it makes sense, via trapdoor records. A project born from anxiety, family rifts, and uncertainty, 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.

Alongside the project, oogie is also sharing the video for his standout track “train station.” Directed by Henry Croston, the visual is an idyllic counter-part to the standout track, finding oogie fixing his bike in the middle of a forest as friends cut through monotony to find their personal release in the midst of a seamless loop. The video is the third from the project following “DRILLERS” and “try,” the latter of which acts as an introduction to the community that’s centric to oogie’s identity and the themes of his debut.
