Oliver Bassily

Broken Stars

00:00 / 03:47

Hi! I'm Oli Bassily (Stage name is Oli Iris), and I'm a singer, songwriter and producer from Melbourne. The quarantine has given me a lot of time to work on my craft, and I hope you enjoy the music I have to offer!

Because this song is about sleep, dreams, loneliness and the build up of emotions, I decided to express this by first starting the piece off quietly; expressing concerns of my life through vulnerability in the lyrics, accompanied by dreamy synths. The lyrics and music then gradually builds up from the pre-chorus to the chorus, having everything 'burst' out at the second half of the first chorus. Then, the bridge is where the song climaxes and gets more sentimental, with backing vocals to represent the drift off to sleep, quieting down for the end of the song.
