Starting his artistic journey afresh by adopting a new creative approach after an artistic hiatus, OLIVER PINDER has since transformed his sound from its dark, indie-folk roots into an eclectic mix of guitar-driven alternative pop anthems and heartfelt piano ballads. Encompassing the earnest lyricism of artists Matilda Mann and Jeremy Zucker, as well as the glitchy synth-wave instrumental layers akin to that of The Japanese House and Holly Humberstone, Pinder’s music captures the anxieties of today’s younger generation. Following his return to the music industry, the 22-year-old Wakefield based artist unleashed his debut EP entitled POTENTIAL, I GUESS? in May 2023.

Focussing on the struggles faced by twentysomethings venturing through adulthood, each song of his first record details Pinder’s attempt to navigate unknown sonic territory whilst remaining true to his song-writer roots. Having been featured by the likes of BBC Radio 6 and BBC Introducing, Potential, I Guess?
