Oliver Beardmore – The Smiles Don’t Reach Their Eyes

"Caught between the ethereal and the existential."

Oliver Beardmore‘s second album, “Tailspin“, takes listeners on an angst-filled journey into the alternative subculture. It seamlessly blends elements of multiple genres to create captivating and evocative sonic textures, coupled with meticulously crafted songwriting. The album explores themes such as self-destructive thought patterns, the discrepancy between reality and idealisation, and the overwhelming emotions associated with unspoken secrets. The resulting storm of sound is an immersive experience that transports listeners to a vacuum, caught between the ethereal and the existential.

Oliver‘s signature shoegaze sound is taken to a new level in “The Smiles Don’t Reach Their Eyes“, crossing the sonic landscapes of bands like The Cure or Nirvana. The track pushes the boundaries of shoegaze into post-punk and grunge territory, resulting in a unique and captivating sound.
