Sometimes, all it takes to make your mark is a change in direction. After some years producing experimental and piano, choral and chamber music, Olga Solar turned her attention to indie and released her rich vocals into the world.
Based on Darlinghurst, Australia, Olga Solar has every trick she needs to rule the indie music business. Originally a violinist with both orchestral and family (all her family played instruments) formation, her change to vocalist left everybody surprised, and it is not hard to understand why. Owner of some epic powerful tones, her singing ranges from rock to folk always leaving a feeling of effortlessness and an immense grasp for more. Having released her debut EP in 2018, it is with Tulips that everything starts for us. And just like her change in career, the track starts strong with her vocals up-front. For a bit, you can only hear some gorgeous violin based strings and simple drums as the instrumental background. Once her vocals have stunned you all over (trust us they will), the song evolves with an electric guitar and catchy lyrics. And never leaves you anymore. “
If her “engagement” with us starts with Tulips by any means it ends there. Less rocky and more pop, but nonetheless equally powerful, Tingle Fingers is a haunting song. Highly hypnotic and multi-layered, this is clever songwriting, unusual vocals and a very unique sense of wonder. One that is somehow perfectly illustrated with an also beautiful video like the one below. Tingle Fingers is filled with gorgeous details we can’t quite notice until we have let ourselves be consumed by it several times, and that is so worth it. Exciting and new, we are left on the verge of our enthusiasm with this.
