The music industry has been known to churn out a plethora of glamorous pop stars, many of which fit into a similar mould. Olivia Swann is here to show that she will not be conforming to this mould with her sophomore track “Two Faces”. Filled with twinkling synths and electric guitars, the track is an upbeat springtime tune with brazen and attitude-filled lyrics. The singer offers a celebration of individuality and personal style with the song, as well as a refusal to back down and succumb to industry pressures.
“’Two Faces’ is a song about that person who talks the big talk but who is fake with their small talk, telling you all the things you want to hear but as soon as your back is turned, they say the complete opposite,” claims Olivia. “It’s a common story in the industry of someone trying to mould and completely shape somebody to fit into a box, so someone had to say it! I’m definitely not that artist who is attracted by how much somebody can brag and name drop, it doesn’t work with me.”
With the singer sighting Outkast, Erykah Badu and Amy Winehouse as some of her inspirations, it is clear that her music is genre-defying and, in turn, very individualistic in style. Her unwavering sense of self shines through in her work and resonates with those who hear it, which is clear through the success of her previous tracks which have been used by popular TikTokers such as Kristen Hancher. The unique star is paving the way for her personal style of work to be heard, making her someone to keep a close eye on.
