Introducing: Olive Louise – Bad Things


Olive Louise is a singer, songwriter and composer from New York. Known for her championed ability to intertwine her classically trained background with a refreshing take on today’s contemporary pop landscape, Louise translates her vast wealth of experiences into music that is timely as it is timeless.

She just released her new single Bad Things and it’s so good. I like the unique pop melodies. Besides, the vocals are delicate. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the large rolling drums and powerful hooks.

Lyrically, the song is very impressive. Bad Things narrates the singer’s struggle with anxiety at a young age, where she was consumed with constant premonition. Detailing the battle with the stigma associated surrounding therapy and mental healthcare, combined with the broken healthcare system, Louise hopes to remind others to stop feeling like they may deserve these negative feelings and do all we can to make the quality of our lives better. Louise confides, “The main message behind this song is that even when you feel like no one gets what you’re going through or like nobody is really listening, you aren’t alone and you shouldn’t let it stop you from being open. Don’t bottle anything in. It is okay to feel your emotions and to be upset when life gets tough, but then own that feeling, and let it propel you forward”.

Bad Things is paired with a fantastic music video, directed by Harrison and Louise herself. The visuals are on another level. The clip captures the feel of the song perfectly. 

Louise always talks about important topics. Her music has such an impact on so many people. She inspires the world with her artistry. Bad Things needs all the attention. Start streaming it as soon as possible!
