Today Oliver Keane returns with his stellar new single ‘Fixing a Broken Heart’ along with news of his debut EP ‘16mm dream sequence’ due for release on the 22nd of April!
‘Fixing a Broken Heart’ comes as a gorgeous moment of honesty from the up and comer. Led by his standout vocals, the single navigates the pain of a missed opportunity. Sharing more, Oliver explained: ‘Fixing a broken heart was about a friend of mine. We’d both been flirting back and forth but neither had the courage to make a move. She started talking to another guy and as her friend I had to sit there and accept that.’
Fixing a Broken Heart comes in the wake of indie-rock release 3am, a track that hundreds of thousands of fans had been patiently waiting for, after hearing the demo on TikTok last year. The release saw support from a wealth of tastemaker support including Complex UK, Variance and Wordplay Magazine.
Despite being just 18 years old, Oliver Keane has been writing songs on the daily for over six years. “We’re talking about thousands of songs. I can’t remember the last time I went without making music, or having some form of an idea just sitting in the back of a train, singing to myself like a weirdo…”
Driven by distinctive vocal, clever songwriting and catchy melodies, Oliver Keane’s debut EP coming next month, looks to be an impressive body of work.
