Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Ollie Olivia has transported us to the glow of the 70's on her debut single, You Keep Saying. The release arrives alongside an official visual, filmed at home straight from Melbourne's recent lockdown.
Built upon jingling guitar and a funky bass line, the disco-infused track is heralded by Olivia's bewitching vocals floating above nostalgic sonics. Conceptually, the song is all about taking the power when that pesky ex who rejected you comes back for more, and kicking them to the curb once and for all. Laced with sassy and tongue-in-cheek lyricism, You Keep Saying is the perfect introduction to Ollie Olivia.
Speaking of the track, the singer shares: “It's a song reminiscent of the 70s love affairs; melancholy, dramatic and with a healthy serving of sass. Get ready to sing and dance.’’ She adds of the visual, "The visualizer was a DIY lockdown project; we’d just been put into full lockdown in Melbourne so I had to get resourceful, I pulled out my old family VCR and filmed it in my living room. I’d always wanted to shoot something with my vintage 70s swivel chair and my grandma’s 80s cord phone, so they became the inspirational imagery for the song.’’
Emerging as an artist in her own right, Olivia has spent the past six years working alongside her brother and fellow musician Mitch Bag, most recently lending her vocals to the musicians Peter Holz produced track, Fake It To A Place.
