Oli Fox shines on breezy indie-pop gem ‘Half As Much’

New EP ‘The Season’ released 9th September via Ampersounds

London singer-songwriter Oli Fox returns with a brand new release with the arrival of ‘Half As Much’, the focus track from the new EP ‘The Season’ released today through Ampersounds.

Drawing on a myriad of influences from pop, indie and soul, ‘Half As Much’ is both confessional and soul-searching in it’s hybrid nature, bringing a 90s/00s indie-pop flair to the proceedings.

Oli says: “The EP is a crash course on how to fall in and out of love. From ‘the season’ which I wrote in a state of euphoria after putting myself back into the dating scene, to the bitter recollection of a relationship I’d left in ‘Cloud 9’. I really hope people can resonate with at least one of these stages. ‘Half as much’ is my favourite song on the album as I wrote the chorus in roughly five minutes, slumped in my kitchen doorway. It’s a bit of an epiphany, realising that someone can almost make you feel twice the person you were without them, hence the concept of ‘I only ever felt half as much'”.

Following on from recent singles, ‘Heartbreaker’ and ‘The Season’, garnering support from BBC Radio 1 and BBC Introducing, the new EP marks the return of indie singer-songwriter Oli Fox and the first ever EP release from new independent label AmperSounds. Evolving from Oli’s debut, self-produced EP ‘Sunburnt’, ‘The Season’ EP is a vibrant blast of “raw pop” (Oli’s own words), with striking drums and soaring guitars.

A prolific top-liner for a host of other performing artists, Oli has seen early success amassing over 8M+ streams on Spotify and secured recent co-write credits on singles by Lilly Ahlberg (730K Spotify monthly listeners), James Smith (2.8M Spotify monthly listeners), Aquilo (1.9M monthly listeners) and Gorgon City (4.2M Spotify monthly listeners).
