Oliver Malcolm dropped his new single “Outside” this week alongside a dreamy, nostalgic music video. Described by Interview Magazine as “The UK’s Most Talented Bad Boy,” Oliver has continued to nail a blending style combining alt-blues, folk, hip-hop and electro-pop & more.
At age 20, Oliver has developed his own voice, and “Outside” is a perfect example of that. Inspired by the stories told in documentaries of rock n roll legends, the lyrics describe the hidden burdens that come with fame.
“There are parallels in what [these rock stars] talked about, in terms of isolation and loneliness, with how I feel and how I think everyone feels at times. The roller coaster lifestyle of these rock stars – ups and downs, triumphs and losses, which everyone experiences in life. This constant battle between good and evil no matter how small or large it may be.” – Oliver Malcolm
A perfect start to fall, ”Outside” continues to showcase Oliver’s natural songwriting ability and pensive voice – with riffs that hit in all the right places making it easy to feel the emotion behind the lyrics. “Outside” gives off a chill, laid back vibe that is perfect for getting lost in your thoughts.
