[T]aking on 90s R&B is a task not many can pull off, but North London Singer/Songwriter Amber Olivier sure is on a mission. Bringing Aailyah vibes strongly into 2018, her debut EP premieres here with HUNGER today. Featuring 6 new tracks from the up-and-coming icon, the sensual sounds exemplify her soft but sultry voice, encompassing soulful vibes within her atmospheric classic 80s and 90s melodies.
Teaming up with Brent Faiyaz for production, the tracks evoke moving moments of intimacy within its sonic eloquence: exploring themes of love and relationships, the sounds are as movingly aware of the presence of absence as their writer. A mesmerising look into Amber Olivier’s world, she has solidified her style having written and recorded her own music since the age of 17. Speaking about her self-titled EP, she explains:
“There was no premeditated concept for my project, I just knew I wanted it to be honest & feel good. I’d describe this body of work as a select few songs that simply introduce me to you”
