Oliver Bassily

Paradise

00:00 / 01:04

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!

This is a bouncy and upbeat song, and so I decided to make the tempo moderately fast, with a brass synth leading the piece. I wanted the song to be repetitive enough that it is catchy, but not so repetitive that it becomes boring, which is why I implemented a verse with a lot of chord changes taking inspiration from jazz, with a fast moving melodic line. This complex verse compliments the catchy chorus, and it is all strung together through instrumentation. (Also, you are the first to hear this song other than some close friends, so get excited!!!)
