Feted by the likes of Grammy award-winning DJ/producer Mark Ronson, Alice Olivia looks set to continue her rapid ascent from bonafide internet sensation to music tastemaker consciousness with the release of her latest single “Shot You Down”.
Blazing onto the scene last year, Olivia immediately began to attract critical acclaim from the likes of THE FADER, THE405 and WONDERLAND as well as coverage on BBC R1 and BBC R1Xtra, for her mix of ethereal vocal with producer Lipso’s icy, heavy bass instrumentals – quickly establishing her as a potential UK breakthrough. It also saw Alice flying back and forth to New York to shoot a YouTube-commissioned mini documentary due to her viral subscriber numbers. She ended the landmark year with well-earned debut performance at the Isle Of Wight festival.
Now having spent the recent months again honing her sound in the studio with producer Lipso, what’s emerged is “Shot You Down” – a blazing new release that conjures the dance banger purity of Major Lazer with the sass of Aluna Francis. Alice is looking like one of the main threats to the cool pop crown this year. Already hitting incredible Youtube numbers, it looks like another pivotal year for the talented young star.
