ALBUM REVIEW: Olive B releases debut album 'With or Without You' [R&B/Pop]
WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY:
Titled ‘With or Without You, the new album from Olive B features a total of 8 new songs. Influenced by the sounds of R&B and Pop, ‘With or Without You’ is produced exceptionally well—you can thank Bobby Love for that.
On our first listen, we were instantly hooked by Olive’s writing style and charm. The lyrics are beautifully written and the energy behind her performance radiates a positive and demanding energy. Whether it’s dance, pop, or R&B… Olive B infuses magic into everything she touches and will keep you coming back for more.
On our second listen, the details of the production started to come out and we were able to drift off to the many melodies and production elements present throughout the album. From reverb-drenched guitars, to luscious soundscapes, to punchy kicks and dark undertones… it’s a diverse project that can be enjoyed from start to finish and features a timeless experience you’ll enjoy for years to come.
On our third, fourth, and fifth listen… (I think you get the point).
In conclusion, ‘With or Without You’ is a 10/10 album and it exceeded all of our expectations. We recommend listening through the album from start to finish to get the full effect, but don’t worry, it’ll be the best 24 minutes you’ll spend all week.

WHAT THE ARTIST HAS TO SAY:
“The listener is taken on a journey through the stages of a relationship from beginning to end of the album. The first half is upbeat, fun and playful, and encapsulates being in love and getting to know someone intimately. Midway through the album, there is a shift in tone that represents the uncertainty of the future you have with that person. Towards the end is realizing it won’t last, the process of letting go, and saying goodbye for now. — Olive B
