“The collection consists of songs mostly written and developed during lockdown. The band podded down and practiced in the open air on each other’s porches with little parlor guitars and a single snare drum. The music is still heavy, but displays a more melodic and song-based aesthetic. Vocal harmonies have been taken up many notches and arrangements are more carefully considered.” Dave Cupp Siren Suit
The Oscillation build upon elements of recognizable musical styles such as shoegaze, psychedelic-, space- and krautrock throughout Untold Futures, the evocative soundscapes that they create reflect a sound that is wonderfully and uniquely their own.

“Most of these songs came together over the course of the pandemic, but the first single, Out of Nowhere, was written, recorded, and released in early 2020. Originally, we only planned to do a single with Gus, but we had such an amazing experience working with him that we decided to push out as many songs as we could together over the next few months. One Short Ride was the result. TLH
“‘Lines and Miniatures’ is a very personal and subtle album, delving deep in the emotions, experiences and feelings of loneliness, isolation and uncertainty. I think it’s very relevant to the current events of the world – to do the best we can to not get overwhelmed in the background noise and continue somewhat defiantly striving towards the light, the growth of our personalities,” Rihards Libietis
Today’s album is one of the most multicolored releases I’ve listened to in connection to writing. Not only is it full of brilliantly crafted songs that feel airy and natural, but they’re also full of stories and thoughts on some very impactful topics.
