Following the success of his debut single, ‘Eagle to Pray’, Australian artist Oliver Kirby, aka LOVER, returns with his exciting release ‘Best Side’. Written, recorded, mixed and mastered within the walls of Kirby’s Greevale House, ‘Best Side’ has a bright, warm and summery atmosphere, capturing a specific moment in time.
I think a lot of people have this expectation that they have to be perfect all the time. I wanted to express that a good friend accepts your mistakes. Whatever they may do, the best parts of them will outshine the less glamourous ones.
Instrumentally ‘Best Side’ has a bittersweet feel to it, juxtaposing the positive story and meaningful lyrics. The track manages to effortlessly grasp the concept that no-one can be perfect and that learning to accept your mistakes is a vital part of life. Taking inspiration from his own life and from artists such as Rex Orange County, ‘Best Side’ showcases his sheer level of talent through creating a positive philosophy and continuing to explore new areas of his sound.
