Oliver Earnest „The Usual Amount“

posted at 11/11/2021

Today we have the pleasure to release the new single by Oliver Earnest taken from his stunning debut album entitled "The Water Goes The Other Way" out November 26 via Glitterhouse Records. Enjoy „The Usual Amount“.

To describe the music on "The Water Goes The Other Way", you could very well use a line from one of Oliver’s songs. Even though it means something different in the song, it could also be a sticker, stuck onto the cover as a recommendation: “Filling your ears with sound / More than the usual amount.” The lyrics, which often venture into dark terrain, are juxtaposed by Oliver together with his producer (and fellow Kaufmann Frust band member) Florian Stepper with music that gives the beautiful melodies room while, at the same time, vibrating with ideas in just the right parts – more than one would usually expect on songwriter albums; not unless they are by the likes of Sufjan Stevens during his opulent phase. Oliver tells us about their very intensive cooperation: “Florian lives in Berlin in the meantime. He’s the tour guitarist, for example, for Lea Porcelain and works as a producer in a studio at Funkhaus. The way it usually worked, was that I would write the songs and go ahead and record the first raw demos. Then, I would travel to Berlin every couple of weeks, and we would continue to work on the songs together.” Oliver Earnest lives up to his pseudonym here once again and says that Flo’s influence can’t be appreciated nearly highly enough. “Flo put a lot of time, creativity and work into my album. Because it was the first big production of his own in the length of an LP, but also because we are very good friends and, totally besides that, he thought my songs were great.”
