Dallas native Oscar DeLaughter entered the pop scene early last year with his lovelorn debut titled Broken Heart Conversation that saw the son of Tripping Daisy and Polyphonic Spree frontman Tim DeLaughter yearn to be with his partner but having to live with the distance that separated them. It was an unintentional COVID anthem that saw many fans relate and dream of the day they were able to run into each others arms once more in a tender embrace and he doesn’t look like his momentum has any chance of stopping with his fitting hopeful song Just Woke Up.
“Just Woke Up is about coming to grips with the reality of certain aspects in life but keeping hope that things will get better,” Oscar DeLaughter begins to explain. “I feel like things get easier when you’ve accepted what they are… I refer to summer because summer is a time when we plan on doing all the things you’ve wanted to do all year… but unfortunately it doesn’t always work out. This past summer i think everyone had a taste of that more than ever considering the state our world was in.“
This past year has left many of us in a horrible state of unrest and sadness DeLaughter looks towards the more optimistic side where we’ve been striving for self improvement in a time that has proven difficult for millions across the globe. His earnest lyrics dive into the good and bad of this journey he’s undergone as the buoyant production contrasts the deeper meaning the piece offers as his zestful pop vocal fuses it all together in perfect harmony.
