After accumulating over 5million streams featuring on Soulection Jarreau Vandal’s ‘Someone That You Love’, Olivia Nelson is back with gospel-led, soulful track – “Smother Me.”
Premiered by DJ Target on BBC Radio 1Xtra as ‘UK unsigned’, the sensual track, which mixes the perfect blend of smooth vocals, passionate lyrics, and pumping bass lines shows the 21-year-old London singer/songwriter power as not only a skilled artist and songwriter, but a powerhouse vocalist whose range and control over carefully crafted production by Jarreau Vandal.
Olivia further describes the song’s lyrics as
‘experiencing infatuation and falling in love for the first time. Feeling like the wind could carry you away in one sweep, like nothing else matters. Like you’re weightless and everything in the world is suddenly brighter. I wrote this from an honest place and I wanted the music to reflect the powerfulness of that feeling. Even though the feeling of love is light, its also heavy at the same time because your words and actions carry so much weight.’
With a debut EP due out early summer, March will see the release of the next instalment from Olivia, as well as shows at London’s Hackney Oslo and Omera. Check out the incendiary vocal offering of “Smother Me” above and stay tuned for more music from Olivia Nelson in 2018!
