OLI BARTON

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM OLI BARTON

In the bustling landscape of indie music, it’s not uncommon to stumble upon artists who possess that certain spark, that intangible quality that makes them stand out in a sea of sound-alikes. Enter Oli Barton, a London lad whose latest single “It’s Over Now”

Drawing from his roots in Britpop and indie, Oli serves up a delectable slice of sonic nostalgia with “It’s Over Now.” From the moment the first chords chime in, you’re transported back to the days of Blur battling Oasis for Britpop supremacy. But don’t mistake nostalgia for mere imitation – Oli brings his own cheeky charm to the table, infusing the track with a youthful energy that’s impossible to resist.

As a seasoned busker turned budding musician, Oli knows a thing or two about capturing an audience’s attention. His animated performing style translates effortlessly into the studio, with his vocals bouncing along atop a lively backdrop of jangly guitars and propulsive drums. It’s the kind of song that demands to be played at full volume, whether you’re cruising down the motorway or dancing in your bedroom – and trust us, you’ll be doing plenty of both.

But beneath the catchy hooks and irresistible melodies lies a keen sense of songcraft. Oli may be all fun and games on the surface, but there’s a depth to his songwriting that belies his years. “It’s Over Now” may sound like a carefree romp, but listen closer and you’ll hear echoes of heartbreak and longing lurking beneath the surface – the kind of emotional complexity that separates the greats from the also-rans.

Of course, no review would be complete without a nod to Oli’s impressive resume. From gracing the airwaves of BBC Radio to sharing stages with the likes of Starsailor and Baxter Dury, it’s clear that Oli is a talent on the rise. And with “It’s Over Now,” he’s poised to take his place among the indie elite – one infectious chorus at a time.

So, what’s the verdict? “It’s Over Now” may be the end of the song, but it’s just the beginning for Oli Barton. We can’t wait to see where his musical journey takes him next.
