Up-and-coming Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Ollie Olivia has released her debut single 'You Keep Saying'

Ollie Olivia’s new track is about rejecting an ex who rejected you in the first place. It’s a defiant tune; no more games, it’s time to call their ‘bluff’.

On the attitude laden disco/pop track Ollie says, “It’s a song reminiscent of the 70s love affairs; melancholy, dramatic and with a healthy serving of sass. Get ready to sing and dance.’’

On the accompanying visualizer Ollie explains, “the visualizer was a DIY lockdown project; we’d just been put into full lockdown in Melbourne so I had to get resourceful, I pulled out my old family VCR and filmed it in my backyard pool.

“I’d always wanted to shoot something with my grandma’s 80s cord phone, so that became the inspirational image for the song.’’

Ollie Olivia allures with her captivating ethereal vocals, fused with powerful pop melodies. The Melbourne based singer songwriter has been writing and creating songs with her brother Mitch Bag – who we’ve featured multiple times on Beat – for the last six years whilst working as a pharmacist.

In early 2021, working with ARIA award winning producer Peter Holz, Ollie featured on Mitch Bag’s single ‘Fake It To A Place’ which amassed over 250,000 streams to date and was played on Triple J morning breakfast radio.

‘You Keep Saying’ is now available on all streaming services.
