An epic first move for 2022, Oliver Keane unveils his biggest moment yet with an intoxicating new single ‘3am‘ via Platoon.
Hundreds of thousands of fans have been patiently waiting for the release of ‘3 am’ after Oliver uploaded an early demo of the track to TikTok last year, just raspy effortless vocals, clever phrasing and a guitar. Quickly the track written on the toilet got over half a million views.
Oliver explained: “I wrote ‘3am’ on the toilet one night, I do that quite often – go to the toilet, start writing and then I’m there for six hours.
I wrote ‘3am’ in the space of 20 minutes and it’s still my favourite song so far. It’s the staple track – it’s my Wembley song”.
‘3am‘ follows Oliver’s second single ‘Fall Down’, a guitar slicked anthem touching on matters of the heart. The indie-rock offering showed a heavier side to the rising artist’s sound, whereas stripped back debut single ‘In The Morning’ represented a more tender side to his music.
Driven by distinctive vocals, clever songwriting and catchy melodies, Oliver’s debut EP coming soon, looks to be an impressive body of work.
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…”
Derby born and newly London based, Oliver Keane is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He first picked up a guitar aged nine, initially training classically and forming a strong technical foundation for his playing.
Having grown up in a house full of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Nirvana, then exploring his own tastes, artists such as James Morrison at first, and then more indie leaning bands like Catfish and the Bottlemen later. Oliver’s diverse taste in music and constant drive to create has driven his unique sound, firmly cementing him as an exciting artist to watch.
