Every once in a while, you’ll hear a song that just jumps out at you. Olivia Grace’s “Shoestrings” is one of these songs. The track is dark and entrancing, with traces of a Lana Del Ray-meets-Halsey vibe. Olivia’s breathy vocals drift over an eerie instrumental that builds and broods. Paired on top are lyrics packed with metaphor exploring a character who feels like an outsider. Her unique style is both quirky & dark and brings with it a sense of innovation and a focus on introspective lyrics.
The Brooklyn, NY transplant is bursting onto the music scene despite being brand new. In a few years’ time, I think she has what it takes to be a leading name in defining the genre of dark pop.
