Listen: Olivia Grace – Blackbird
'Blackbird' is the new single from Brooklyn via Chicago indie pop artist, Olivia Grace.
At only 21 years of age and currently finishing up college, there is a lot of maturity to the track. It's dark, smoldering indie pop and has traces of Fiona Apple, Melanie Martinez and Lana Del Rey.
'Blackbird' starts at a slow and steady pace before building like a winding musical box. There is an eerie but yet beautiful sense running throughout the song along with some daring tempo changes.
Having started out writing short stories and poetry it is no surprise that the song is strong lyrically with metaphors scattered throughout.
