Taken from his forthcoming album, Floating In The Darkness, out April 28, Oliver’s latest single ‘Losin’ is an ode to lost love – a soul-filled melancholy number that touches on the loneliness of heartbreak, whilst simultaneously creating a sense of warmth and security like that of a much-needed hug.
Filmed live for Aston Rd Sessions, the video accompaniment showcases Oliver’s effortless vocal range opening with a beautiful, yet pained falsetto which gradually transforms to the warm, low, and hopelessly submissive tones of its chorus. The impeccable vocals sit atop a simple acoustic arrangement of soft-slapping guitar, delicate harmonies, and a soulful flugelhorn solo that evidently touches everyone in the intimate space.
“‘Losin’ is a lonely song about feeling someone you love slip away. But it’s intentionally juxtaposed with a bouncy rhythm and sweet melodies. This is meant to represent being so acquainted with hurt that you hardly feel it anymore” - Thomas Oliver
