OLI Shares New Single ‘Cry’

Continuing a run of graceful and deeply emotive singles, London based singer and songwriter OLI has just shared yet another gorgeous single titled Cry
Out now via Ben-Addiction Music, Cry beautifully showcases OLI's irresistible vocals which soar beautifully over gently crescendoing synths that instantly create a warm and intimate atmosphere that won me over from the start. Co-written and produced by legendary producer Benny D (Stormzy, Boy George, Kylie, Plan B, Robbie Williams, Paloma Faith, Depeche Mode), Cry is a song about the therapeutic benefits of crying to help make sense of our problems. As the song builds, we hear and feel the sense of relief and release that crying provides. Apart from her gorgeous vocals I am very fond of the blend of lush synths and emotive piano chords that create warm, ethereal soundscapes that makes this song perfect for those introspective days home alone. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, OLI said,
I specifically wanted ‘Cry’ to focus on that numb feeling, when you’re unable to even process your emotions and let them go. The constant back and forth of knowing something isn’t right inside but wanting to keep going and not seem weak. I’ve always felt crying in general is underappreciated. The second half of the song is describing how good you feel after. How things really can become clearer in your head if you allow yourself to let it out and stop judging yourself for it.
