Following on from her impressively joyous debut single Changing The World, Perth artist Olive is back with another perfect slice of pop with the moody Senseless. Taken from her forthcoming EP, Senseless finds Olive traversing the shadows of a deep, slow-burning indie blues – drenched in Olive’s personality and the enchanting timbre of her world class voice.
A resident of WA’s iconic beach-side suburb of Scarborough, Olive manages to capture sunshine in everything she does… even a darker, more personal tune like Senseless. The sweetness of her voice contrasts against the touch of malaise she paints with her lyrics, resulting in a song that has depth and meaning in addition to its vivacious pop hooks.
Backed by a troupe of versatile, accomplished young musicians, Olive’s remarkable voice arrives in a powerful cavalcade. With more than a touch of Motown in her sound, Olive has captivated audiences with a music landscape that creates something totally modern using elements from the world’s most loved genres. Part self-expression, part homage, Olive’s fearless writing is a music aficionado’s dream.
Preparing herself for a career of doing what she loves – writing, recording and touring – Olive is on the precipice of the greatest adventure of her life… and in just two outstanding songs, she has shown that there is no limit to what she can accomplish. Although only at the beginning of her journey, with songs as powerful as the sultry Senseless on display, there is little doubt that Olive has the potential to become one of Australia’s greatest new vocalists.
