Oliver Tank Talks "OT"
Thu, 11 May 2017 08:37:16
Oliver Tank is preparing to release his debut solo album, called quite simply OT. The Australian musician/producer is already well-known in the southern hemisphere - he's shared stages with the likes of James Blake, Lorde, and Lana Del Rey, while his EPs, Dreams and Slow Motion Music have racked up an impressive 7 million streams on Spotify. Recently receiving praise for his incredible remix of Solange's "Cranes in the Sky" it seems like Oliver Tank is slowly shuffling into position to make a solid impression in the summer of 2017.
On an album that blends dance beats and electronic processes with a sharp eye on lyricism and traditional instrumentation Tank brings focus onto the craft of simultaneously delivering accessible and challenging pop. The tunes here are compelling as they are infectious - and are sure to win the festival stages as Tank hits the shores of North America.
ARTISTdirect caught up with Oliver at his home in Sydney, Australia, to discuss his new project, the perspective and importance of his nearest and dearest, and just how far he dare dream ahead in the next twelve months.
