Formerly the drummer for Californian alternative band The Neighbourhood, Bryan Sammis is continuing his solo project as Olivver the Kid. Dropping a newly recorded acoustic version of his “Now You Know” track, the release marks a year since he left the group in pursuit of new endeavours. Expanding the melancholy mood of the original version, sombreness echoes across the song. Beginning with reverbed cries against dark chords, the track’s overall stripped production creates an empty landscape for reflection and hope. A note from the artist describes how leaving the band has affected him personally, mentioning that it’s been “one year since I’ve talked to 4 of my best friends… in a prison of my own solitude”. Stream the track below, and check out the original version here.
