The first thing that impresses with the new single, is the strength of Olive’s vocal harmonies and the expressive nature of the tones and the range that Olive offers. From the get-go, the acoustic guitar strings pluck this steady movement and then the complex yet comforting vocal notes join, positioned with this immense power at the forefront of the ensemble.

The lyrics draw you in, presenting this clear landscape through the words and the resonating strings. The atmosphere embraces this volatile nature due to the minimalist instrumentation and the carefully layered vocals that shift, building up the intensity towards the final euphoric passage of the track. The addition of the layered melodies injects further hooks into this stunning arrangement, this composition oozes such an emotive connection from the musician to the audience. The reflective nature of the exploration continues to be key for this musician, the journey is one you can lose yourself within, one you can find comfort, and one you will return to.

Discovering this musician, this level of excitement follows, you can embrace that Olive Grinter has so much to offer and with this track, the debut album is due to follow in early 2024 and we know it’s destined to be an essential release.

Of the album, Olive details: “These songs are reflections of conversations with myself and what I’d like to express to others. It’s a small part of a long journey. A reflection on how we see ourselves: within the chaos of life, within the chaos of connecting with those around us, and an attempt to spread kindness and support in the moments we need them most. It is a warm embrace, open arms, a hug.”
