Olivia Nelson unveils new double single ‘Friends’ / ‘Strangers’

Rising British R&B star Olivia Nelson delights on the silky new double single ‘Friends’ and ‘Strangers’ – her first release of 2022.

Wrapping a twisting tale of love across the two tracks, Olivia’s ability to express universal experiences in an equally stylistic and sincere way shines on the release.

Inspired by the complexities of romance, ‘Friends’ battles about a love you know is no good to the vibe of a smooth late-night tune, as strong sub bass pulses throughout the hazy soundscape; whereas the ticking backbeat of ‘Strangers’, a stomping, self-empowering tune of moving on and up, cuts through the confusion to give all the feels of classic R&B pop. Pairing her beautifully texture toned voice with heartfelt lyricism, Olivia’s contemporary take on the genre effortlessly balances a catchy release with confident talent.

In a statement, Olivia remarks: “‘Friends’ is about wanting to be on good terms with an ex but knowing that it’s not very healthy for either of you. ‘Strangers’ is more of a goodbye once the dust has settled, and you are completely out of each other’s worlds. I didn’t want either song to sound sad as it’s quite a relatable subject so they’re both mid-tempo bops, which I hope people will connect with.
