Electronic Duo Olloway's New Single "Haunted" Thumps With Emotion
Before they were Olloway, producers Paul Kane and Brett Fabian were FKYA, an EDM duo remixing chart-topping favorites. Not everything's a perfect fit, though. The guys recognized that though they were raking in the successes, that scene wasn't quite what they were looking for. As a result, they instead formed Olloway, their latest genre-bending electronic project.
Today, they've dropped "Haunted," the second single off their upcoming EP of the same name. The track is an emotive electronic piece led by insistent pulses of percussion and neon rhythms beating in the background, though it opens with a tender piano line before timid vocals come in. Steady above the claps and shimmers, Olloway sings about losing love, but ultimately moving on from it. As the emotional club beat grows with urgency, the chorus hits: "You won't leave me haunted anymore." A gentle electric rock rhythm buzzes before the vocals return, resignedly singing sweet narrative while the song moves back and forth between unrelenting percussion and eerie echoing moments of quietude. "Haunted" is thick with feeling, masked by a guise of neutral dark dance-floor beats.
