Oliver Tank returns with ‘Swerve’
Soulful soundscape artist, OLIVER TANK has returned to the music scene with a highly emotive but oh so lush track, ‘Swerve’.
Entering the scene in 2011 with his electro-pop killer, ‘Dream’, Tank made even more noise with the release of his second album Slow Motion Music later in 2013. Winning FBi‘s Northern Lights Competition in 2012, being a massive accomplishment for the Sydney-based producer, Tank went onto work with the likes of Megan Washington, Julia Stone, Lana Del Ray and Lorde to name a few.
His latest orchestral-meets-electronic fusion, ‘Swerve’, is another a lovely addition to his collection. With soft strings beautifully accompanying Tank‘s vocals, this piece creates for a woefully sweet piece. The piece is moving, touching and encapsulates a pure sense of sincerity. Let Tom take you away with his smooth vocals.
Struggling with self doubt for the past few years, Tank speaks of how he’s taken a different approach to his more recent music, “‘Swerve’ is a very personal track for me. Sometimes it’s tough to let people know who you really are and how you really feel, but i’ve felt more comfortable expressing myself lately. I doubted myself a lot these last few years. I was uncertain and afraid and I let it take control of my life. Recently I told myself to just let it all go. Be yourself. Believe in who you are and what you do, be confident. Swerve is about that doubt I felt, putting this song out into the world is my way of letting go of it”.
