Oli Hannaford – Lily

Devon talent, Oli Hannaford, returns with ‘Lily’.

Another self-produced track, Oli explains “Lily is a slightly complicated way of explaining a period of time where you’re really struggling. I was recently reading about a fish that swims around looking for lily pads to jump on because it breathes air (as well as water? No clue), and there are references to that search for the lily pad throughout. It’s also a bit about taking the struggle and turning it into a positive thing, broadening your mind set a little, but always giving yourself just enough breathing space.”

Stunning debut track, ‘Free Things’, is released by creative newcomer Oli Hannaford.

Vocal, lyrical and melodic comparisons have been made to the likes of Will Heard and Sam Smith, but we think Oli stands as his own contender for musical acclaim.

With over 20 songs to choose from, Oli has been writing for years and has no plans of stopping anytime soon with intentions of creating big electronic live shows to enhance the depth of his already impactful sound.

‘Free Things’ is out via Downtown Artists and available for purchase on iTunes.

Rationale – Fuel To The Fire

Rationale reveals the stunning new video to ‘Fuel To The Fire’, inviting us to witness a more passionate side to his music than previously offered.

The track was written by the Londoner after watching particularly grim news on the television 18 months ago. Rationale explains ‘Fuel To The Fire’ “is a song about power, pressure, frustration & hope.”

The extremely evocative video tells the story, and despite the track being written 18 months ago, the subject matter unfortunately remains timeless.
