This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things
Somewhere to Disappear
Blue Light Disco
Olivia Bartley, a.k.a. Olympia, searches for the link that connects us all on Self Talk. The 11 songs unfold like scrolls containing deep secrets, the result of Olympia’s keen observational prowess. Her crystalline voice disguises the weight of the topics she sings about—internal battles (“Smoke Signals”), escape (“Somewhere to Disappear”), even asylum seekers (“Blue Light Disco”). Piano and guitar gives Self Talk a sturdy spine, while throbbing synth-pop allows freedom of movement.
