Bravery and empathy shine through in Olive Louise‘s stunning musical releases and her latest single “Undefined” is no exception. The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter is no stranger to tragedy. Having lost both her parents at a very young age and only two years apart from each other, Louise was shipped away from boarding school to boarding school. The young creative found herself with not only grief but also a lack of control in her own upbringing and what happened to her parent’s belongings that she held so tight. Through pain comes strength though and coming of age also meant coming to terms with finding the happiness inside oneself. Olive Louise learned that lesson younger than most of us had to and the result is the enthralling “Undefined.”
In “Undefined,” the listener can hear Louise’s classical piano training and millennium pop and soul musical influences. Her breathtakingly angelic vocals float above electronic-infused folk soundscapes. The resulting track has a laid back vibe to it but also a gravity rarely heard in pop music today. The singer confides, “When I wrote this, I was really trying to find the reasons to keep going and not give up on my future and what I kept coming back to, was that I was so fortunate to have been given this life. I won’t be defined by what has happened to me. I take every day one day at a time and am grateful for each new one that arrives.”
“Undefined’ is her latest single following “Bad Things” which was released earlier this year and “Fool” late last year. Her music is often described as Fleetwood Mac meets Melanie Martinez with a dash of Tori Amos. A unique fusion of organic meets digital, Louise’s music is equally dreamy as it is relatable. Take a listen to “Undefined” now and remember to find gratitude in your own life.
