This year with a work rate comparable to Timo Werner, Olivia Swann shows no signs of taking her foot off the gas as she arrives back on into the scene with her first single of the year, ‘No Thanks’. With sounds reminiscent of her debut single, ‘Salty’, she infuses bubbly electro-synth patterns with a deep and resonant beat and hard-hitting R&B vocals, tied together by a soulful organ. Pointing out her classic chastising lyrics, the single has an important message to spread, questioning the actions of those who can’t take no for an answer, a frequent problem that a lot of women go through firsthand.
The Londoner’s vocal range adds deep emotional depth to the song. Olivia also refers to where her inspiration comes from stories told in the media and loved ones around her.
“I honestly hope that through this song, it empowers people, brings us together & reminds everyone to include our entire female community”-LinkUp TV .
After being widely recognized and championed by various titans of the music industry, such as BBC 1Xtra’s DJ Target, BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, and Apple Music’s Rebecca Judd. Having been mentored by Grammy-award winning producers and songwriters, Olivia has perfected her artistry and has surfaced as one of the scene’s most promising newcomers.
“No Thanks” is available to stream on Spotify, ITunes & YouTube .
