New York’s Olive Louise has dropped a new single entitled “Fool.” The song, about embracing your most authentic self and not feeling guilty about being happy in life, showcases ethereal soundscapes, floating synths, and layered vocal harmonies.
“Fool” was mixed by Andrew Wuepper (who’s worked with Justin Bieber) and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Beyonce, Rihanna, Cardi B, Lady Gaga.)
The single is a personal narration of Louise’s own struggles, written at a time in her life when she was having a hard time sorting through other people’s negative opinions.
“I was at a really low point in my life, I had gained weight, was too nervous to run into people I knew for fear of judgment, and felt like some of the people I had been there for the most didn’t want the best for me. It was hard to trust myself and my judgment”.
“Fool” is a self-love anthem, written with a hint of sarcasm, and a representation of letting go of what no longer serves her. Now Louise says, “I’m confident in my skin, I’m confident in myself and I trust that I’ll always find my way.”
Fun fact: Louise grew up on the estate that inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby.’ Mind blown.
