30 APRIL 2020 (TORONTO, ON) - There seems to be no stopping Oliver Malcolm; the rising artist today has released a new offering called “Kevin” which comes with an animated visual. The track first premiered with Zane Lowe on his Apple Music Beats 1 radio show and tops the ‘New Music Daily’ playlist. Speaking to Zane, Oliver shares on the making of the track — made in a small DIY studio behind an automobile shop in London where he was able to make as much noise as he wanted.

Media praise for Oliver Malcolm & “Switched Up”:
“With its deep bassline and bluesy melodies alchemizing jazz and pop influences, he crafts an almost tangible atmosphere of melancholy [in “Helen”] as pleas to a woman echo throughout” — Pigeons & Planes, Best New Artist
“A sleek hybrid of rap and R&B” — FADER
“The drums lurch toward the offbeats, some looped guitar picking tugs against that pulse and Malcolm’s voice is a rattled, quavery moan...Everything stays off-kilter for the two and a half paranoid minutes of “Switched Off” by Oliver Malcolm” — New York Times, Playlist
“Oliver Malcolm's 'Switched Up' Is Intoxicating… new single 'Switched Up' is a mesh of influences, a confluence of sounds, a mosaic of techniques.” — CLASH
“A lot of artists claim genre-blending style, but Malcolm’s is altogether impossible to define. Is it alt-blues? Dark electro-pop? Folk-hip-hop? Does it matter?” — TIME Magazine, Best New Song
About Oliver Malcolm:
Oliver Malcolm got his start early, teaching himself how to spin records at 12 years old. Shortly after, he downloaded Logic and taught himself how to produce – working with IDK, Aluna George, Joey Bada$$, Jay Rock, Masego Tinashe and more. Now twenty, Oliver has developed his own voice. Touching everything from the production, vocals, songwriting, engineering, mixing and mastering, Oliver’s sound is unique and does not fit the mold of one genre. A multidisciplinary at heart, this is just the beginning of music lovers can look forward to from the new artist.
