Premiere: Foster Olson unveils haunting new single ‘Over Me’
Have you ever felt that you’re in an imperfect situation and don’t know how to get out of it? FOSTER OLSON has and she’s written a fantastic song called ‘Over Me’ all about it. The LA-based singer has a lot of talent and this track is only the first taste of what beautiful melodies, harmonies and connections she can create.
‘Over Me’ is a very emotional piece that evolved from quite a personal place for Foster. “Over Me came about at a really hard time in my life,” she explains, “My dad was diagnosed with cancer and my boyfriend at the time had just moved in with me when I realized he wasn’t the right fit for me. And then I met this other guy who was so perfect for me, but I didn’t know how to get out of the relationship I was currently in.”
Putting her heart on her sleeve like this is an incredibly brave thing to do and when you listen to ‘Over Me’, the feelings she felt in that situation flood through you, but it’s definitely not a bad thing. Having the raw emotions flood your mind alongside a hard beat and haunting vocals, makes it feel unique and refreshing.
Everything in ‘Over Me’ flows easily. It feels organic and you can hear how engulfed in the piece Foster Olson becomes as she sings. This is something special, this is something we rarely get to feel and we are so damn ecstatic that this wonderful talent has been brought into our lives.
Feast your ears, they’ll thank you for it.
