Four Dream Pop singles: Oslo Parks, French Cassettes, and Talkie

Oslo Parks – Like A Stone

Oslo Parks (or Øslø Pårks) is a British duo from Brighton, who write infectious dream pop songs. Rob Flynn writes and produces the music, and Ian Booth is on bass, and designs the art. The group is filled out when playing live with three additional musicians. Like A Stone breaks a five year silence, and this song has us hooked.

I’ve jumped all the fences,
I’ve crossed every sea,
I’d climb any mountain,
If you’ll look at me.
