“…irresistible Americana groove and understated English vocals…” Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music. “Sublime!” Christian Carlisle, BBC Radio Sheffield. Oh Papa write sunny pop numbers with rolling rhythms, evocative of the SoCal scene of west-coast America, classic troubadours like Harry Nilsson, and contemporary weirdos like Shintaro Sakamoto. Their ‘Papa Les’ EP – released in late 2018 – featured in many local ‘best of’ lists, and garnered support from the BBC Radio 1 and local radio stations.
