Oliver’s debut album Novemberism was released on November 15 and has been hailed as a “melancholic masterpiece”, in the Sunday Times Culture Magazine, by acclaimed critic, Lisa Verrico.
She wrote, “This newcomer from Brighton equates November with deep-seated sadness, and his debut is a melancholic masterpiece that captures the confusion of a break-up. Spectral vocals set to strings, synth pop and sparse piano bring to mind James Blake and the Blue Nile. Golden, a wintry spine-chiller, and Xanax, a 1980s-indebted beauty, should be among the songs of the year.”
Glide called it a “soulful chamber pop composition” showcasing a “staggeringly beautiful voice.”
