That care-free nonchalance you encounter in some music – and some personalities – comes in two forms. The first is the arrogance that has typified much guitar-based music for too long. The second is altogether different. It comes from a place of security, confidence, and hope.

Listen: Oh Papa – Sitcom

That’s the feeling you can’t help but get from Oh Papa. Their new EP, Sitcom, confers the reassuring feeling that both they – and you as the listener – have nothing to prove to anyone in the world. Their unhurried delivery, warm sonic palette, and light-handling of lyrical themes make for a legitimately rewarding listen.

Addressing topics such as the futility of offence, being dazzled by a lover, feeling trapped, and – like their last record – grandparents, stoic and insightful lyrics are delivered even more softly than on Papa Les – as if that were possible.

A step forward from the equally charming Papa Les EP, Sitcom shows a new level of maturity, and a timeless quality to both songwriting and production. Comparisons with the likes of Whitney and Andy Shauf are not unwarranted. But something tells me Oh Papa will age even better than these.
