“I remember the time I drove around with you. I remember the time, I know you felt it too.”
Admittedly, I remember being disappointed when I found out that Bryan Sammis aka Olivver, left The Neighbourhood, but I am so happy that he did because the music he has released so far as a solo artist has been brilliant. Olivver just recently released a new gem, “Freak,” and I can’t stop listening to it. The track is infectiously 80’s retro sounding, alternating seamlessly between reflective somber verses and a synth dance-worthy hook. What I love most about this track is the nostalgic emotions I feel when listening to it. It invokes all the confusing and thrilling parts of adolescence.
Olivver’s EP, also titled Freak will be available on iTunes on October 28th. If you are like me, however, and can’t wait, you can download the tracks right now off his website.
