Dipping into various pop sounds, the Whitley Bay born singer has released multiple EP’s with her debut Growing Pains first being released in 2017. This EP encapsulated the realistic view of growing up as a teenager which is sure to be relatable to with songs such as the upbeat ‘School Girls’ expressing the feelings around friendships and the ups and downs. Followed by a slower ‘Panic’ relating to the fear of realising you fell in love with someone you didn’t expect.
Openly queer, Olivia hasn’t shied away from expressing how grateful she is to provide a platform for queer individuals and give them someone to look up to, something she feels she didn’t have when she was younger. Her second EP Peer Pressure includes a personal track ‘Daughter’ which relates to a mother of a former girlfriend who didn’t appear to be supportive. Also featured on this EP is the titled track ‘Peer Pressure’ correlating with losing yourself in order to fit in.
Devine recently released a two-part EP Near Life Experience which includes the empowering track ‘Girls Like Sex’, expressing how she wanted to change the narrative that “men talk about sex but girls only talk about feelings”. This EP also features the upbeat ‘Die on the Dancefloor’ romanticising nights out with friends and the longing for escaping reality. Alongside her music, she has also created a podcast titled ‘Growing Pains’ in which she talks to guests about their experiences of growing up and sharing coming of age stories.
Olivia is next set to play Newcastle in June alongside Years and Years at the new Rock N Roll Circus.
