Home > New music > Olive Louise: Crafting Musical Alchemy with “Special” Resonance

Where genres often blur, Olive Louise emerges as a distinct voice, embodying the essence of ‘Don’t Gild the Lily.’ Her melodies, woven with soaring strings and ethereal harmonies, seamlessly traverse the realms of dream pop, indie folk, and Americana. Despite the profound challenges life threw at her – losing both parents before the age of 15 – Olive’s musical narrative remains an open book, her poetic lyrics resonating intimately with listeners.

“My father’s words, ‘you don’t paint apples red or flowers more vibrant,’ echo in my mind,” Olive shares. “I embrace imperfections; you can be soft and have grit.” Her music reflects this ethos, inviting audiences into a world where vulnerability coexists with strength, where the beauty lies in authenticity.



Olive Louise’s visual aesthetic is a journey into a disheveled yet enchanting “au natural” Victorian-inspired world. It exudes an eerie nostalgia, a visual reflection of the profound changes life has thrust upon her. “My experiences have led me through immense shifts. I never envisioned my life unfolding this way. The imagery in my music mirrors the struggle of not fitting in, of moving through life without the luxury of time for contemplation.”
