Oscar Jerome embarks on massive tour with new single "Lizard Street" [Video]

Oscar Jerome continues his ascent in the music world with a Fall tour of Europe and Australia as well as the release of a new single and video entitled "Lizard Street." The South-London guitarist, vocalist, and member of the afrobeat group KOKOROKO has been prolific in recent years in recordings and performances as he has honed his unique soulful sound. "Lizard Street" is the latest incarnation of his compelling artistic evolution and showcases his tasteful musicality with a stylish black and white video directed by Denisha Anderson.

In proper Oscar Jerome fashion, "Lizard Street" delivers nimble musicianship and emotionally resonant lyrics while never sacrificing the groove. Over a guitar-centered arrangement with pulsing drums, Jerome sings about his resentment toward the cutthroat and competitive mentality in society that can make someone lose track of their true identity. The track culminates in the anthemic refrain where he writes, "I've been dragging my heels down Lizard Street… as I've been waitin' around for an epiphany / since day one." The song provides another example of Jerome's abundant talent and expanding sound that should not be missed on tour.
