Oliver Pinder releases the explosive new single ‘pretty faces’ ahead of his upcoming UK tour.
Departing from his indie-folk roots, the new single see’s Pinder move into a more rock led diorection, whilst also encompassing dappled synth lines. Built around a growling, fuzz soaked bass and soaring guitar riffs, the track instantly captures a senses of explosive energy from off before. Led by Oliver’s emotive lead vocal the track grows into a swelling synth led chorus as Pinder’s vocals soaring through the earworm vocal line.
Talking about the track, Pinder explains: “I wrote this song with my friend Jacob, since I was quite young I have always been quite jealous of other people’s looks, characteristics and I have continuously been self conscious particularly in the social media world – scrolling down socials can be a really toxic place. That’s exactly what this one is about, feeling envious of people’s looks and happy feed friendly lifestyles
This one is like nothing I’ve made before, we really went hard on the production to symbolise the anger and emotion within the lyrics.
It’s so fun to play live, it’s a little ridiculous, when the room is there, I’ve been caught standing on the odd bar or table, it’s a little silly, but I LOVE IT”
Having undergone a transformative musical journey since his debut single ‘Stressed’ in October 2022, Oliver Pinder has evolved into a versatile artist, blending guitar-driven alternative pop anthems with heartfelt songwriting which allows him to glide between styles from one song to the next. The release of ‘pretty faces’ marks the beginning of a new chapter for Oliver, teasing the heavier realms of his evolving sound ahead of his upcoming UK Headline Tour.
