Oslo Park's latest track "Slipping Away" is a luscious, synth-soaked gem

A single listen to “Slipping Away” would have you believe that Oslo Parks - the joint venture of producers Rob Flynn and Ian Booth - hailed from the golden coastlines of California. The track’s electric guitar flourishes and breezy vocals seem too luminous to have their origins on Brighton’s rainy shores.

Flynn and Booth have clearly mastered some sort of synthpop formula without once sounding formulaic. The song’s driving bassline is trance-inducing from the off, but by the time the chorus hits, “Slipping Away” is bound to have listeners dissolving into a sun-soaked reverie. The pair effortlessly blend traditional rock instrumentation with electronic components - synth embellishments and computerised beats - for blissful results. “Slipping Away” is, quite simply, an essential summer listen.

To date, Oslo Parks have released two singles and played several gigs, though the latter part of 2015 will likely prove to be their breakout moment. Watch this space, and check out "Slipping Away" below.
