In case you haven’t noticed, summer is here in full effect and Olive Amun’s new project “Don’t Leave Yet” is giving what it needs to. Filled with carefree energy and bundles of wistful lyricism, the singer delivers up an effervescent project that brims with passion and modern romance. Keeping things cool and light-hearted on the surface, the artist dives in deep throughout the project, delving into contradicting emotions using addictive hooks and vivid melodies. With each track the artist opens himself up more, easily navigating themes of love and heartbreak in an alt-pop soundscape.
Opening up on the meaning behind the EP, the artist said, “I noticed in a lot of the demos I was making, I kept saying these 3 words… don’t. leave. yet. It was unintentional, but after a while, I knew this was the recurring theme and had to be what I base this project on. ‘Don’t Leave Yet’ is filled with self-exploration; musically and figuratively speaking. This was the first time I got comfortable with the uncomfortable and didn’t hold anything back. After about 6 months and 50+ song ideas, I finally had the EP I was looking for. When you play it front to back you really get a taste of everything that I have in my locker. I knew I had so much more to give artistically than I had showcased in the past, and this body of work was the perfect opportunity for me to finally go for it and not hold anything back.”
The Melbourne talent commands attention on his debut project, covering a range of genres, from hip-hop sensibilities to acoustic guitar-led ballads. With the project marking the start of his career, we’re excited to see where the journey will take him.
