Olive B – Playmate
Olive B uses her melodic voice and emotive lyrics to take listeners on a reflective and often nostalgic journey through their past relationships, and the pain and pleasures that accompany love. Olive’s first release was a seven-song mixtape titled No(W)here, released May 2017, produced and mastered by Toronto-producer Kayobe. In 2018, she collaborated with Vancouver-based producer Chewy on “Always You” and “Joey Moon.” Olive B is currently in the studio with producer Bobby Love (“Illusion” and “Fine Wine”) working on finishing an eight-song album titled With Or Without You. It’s a mix of indie pop meets alternative R&B. Look for this release on all streaming platforms on Wednesday May 29th.
Artist Quote: The song was inspired by a relationship I was in, where I felt fully committed to this person, and eventually, it became one-sided. He didn’t seem to care about me, but he put more effort in when I acted the way I thought he wanted me to. The song is split between a vulnerable submissive side and one where I felt powerful and comfortable with being myself. At first, writing this track was emotional, but the more I started writing the more empowered I felt.
