Melbourne-based rising star Olive Amun shares new single “Deadweight”
Although 23 year-old Melbourne, Australia artist Olive Amun only seriously committed to music a few years ago, he’s already being compared to some of his biggest influences— the late Mac Miller, Dominic Fike and Odd Future. Having garnered editorial and radio support from Spotify, Apple Music, Zane Lowe, Triple J Radio and more, Amun is back to showcase his immense potential, as well as his status as one of the most exciting emerging artists right now with the alternative anthem “Deadweight”.
Produced by Fossa Beats (Mike Posner, Allday, Trevor Daniel) and Len20 (Kid Cudi, Cordae, Young Thug), “Deadweight” flawlessly combines multiple genres such as alternative rap and indie pop with elements of alternative rock. Overall, “Deadweight” is a beautifully-written song with a summer vibe (perfect for the upcoming summer season down under)— Amun has mastered the art of catchy lyrics and melodies, one that easily stick with you.
“Deadweight” touches on a mix of real relationships and experiences, but also has some dark fantasies that are sprinkled on top to stir up the record a little bit.I wanted it to feel like a Tarantino movie. I want people to like it but I want them to like it because it’s rough and sour and makes you a little uncomfortable” — Olive Amun.
