Icelandic artist Ouse was raised just three hours from Reykjavik, the capital. His latest album "Crying in Camo" will be released in just a few weeks—marking the end of more than 2 years of creative work. This 20-year-old combines electronic pop, Icelandic rap, and elements of soul with flawless production technique and a forward-looking sound.

"trouble / tonight" is a new age song filled with entertaining moments and catchy melodies, fused with the power of an upbeat groove and dynamic interludes. After successfully connecting with fans on Spotify, Youtube, and even Fortnite, Ouse signed a deal with 12Tone Music. He began making music as a form of self therapy—but now he's getting ready to let loose with a whole new collection of meticulously-crafted songs that are sure to connect with his millions of fans around the world. Written, recorded, & produced all by himself in his bedroom, Ouse's music personifies the power of creative expression to transcend the boundaries of space and time. His life story serves as a reminder that real emotion and honest lyrics will always find a way to connect with an audience.

When I make music that expresses how I’m feeling, I know someone out there is feeling that way too and hopefully it makes them feel less alone. — Ouse

Ouse takes inspiration from hip-hop artists like Eminem and indie pioneer Hopsin as well as emo rappers like the late Juice WRLD and XXXTentacion.
