Pop singer-songwriter Olivia Rees has recently released her phenomenal Alt Pop hit Darker Night. Expect to be hit with full-frontal emotion, viscerally compelling lyrics and hypnotically atmospheric electronic instrumentals.
It’s strikingly meta lines such as “I lost myself when I looked for you” which puts Olivia Rees’ striking style leagues apart from any other up and coming Pop artist in 2020. With a nuanced infusion of Hip Hop in the rhythmically arrestive beats and plenty of bite behind her vocals, Darker Night is as distinctive as it is captivating.
It’s tangibly clear that Olivia Rees never set out to assimilate with this passion-soaked hit. It oozes with authentic creative ingenuity.
