Oliver Robinson's latest release Apollo is a ten track self produced album
inspired by the experiences of living as a travelling musician.
The album opens with Breathe, a song which describes the juxtaposition
of feelings of anxiety and excitement at the start of a journey. The following
tracks go on to describe bleak landscapes and hardships
but also hope, joy and the beauty in fleeting moments.
Oliver's writing style often interweaves his own experiences with fictional
narratives resulting in themes that hold personal significance but are subtle
enough for others to interpret their own meaning.
The Album concludes with Alleviation, written of a time when he and
friends would go out in search of meteor showers and the feelings this
sparked of being very small in an infinite universe.
