Right after steadily making his profile as a producer in the SoCal scene over the previous couple of several years, Oliver Malcolm today (Feb. 20) tends to make his solo debut with the new one, “Switched Up.”
On the two-and-a-fifty percent-minute outing, Malcolm navigates paranoid verses (“Acting like they like me definitely I know/They hold an eye on wherever I go”) above strummed acoustic guitar and broken beats. Backed by throbbing sub-bass and distant synth stabs, the song’s resigned and repetitive chorus lets Malcolm to display screen his vocal flexibility while extending the lyrical themes of suspicion and mistrust.
Drawing from his years of practical experience doing work along with artists like AlunaGeorge, G-Eazy and Tinashe, Malcolm is credited as the sole songwriter and producer on “Switched Up.”
In Oct, the 20-year-old multi-instrumentalist (previously regarded as Huge Kidd) turned heads soon after signing with The Darkroom, the Interscope sub-label that helped launch Billie Eilish to stardom.
