Oliver Malcolm’s “Skywalker” Propels Him Towards EP Release


Fiery newcomer Oliver Malcolm burst on the scene a year ago with explosive debut “Switched Up,” a track that garnered the 20 year old one-man-band early critical praise from New York Times, FADER, NME, Clash and many more. Today he drops his new single “Skywalker,” an equally emotive song filled with 808s and addictive guitar licks, written and produced by Oliver himself. The track which will appear on his upcoming debut EP and was first played on Annie Mac’s Future Sounds Show on BBC Radio 1 and comes with an accompanying video.

“The making of Skywalker and the song itself just felt like a journey, I don’t know where from and where to, but I think that’s why the song resonated with me when I made it. We’re all on a journey and I think everyone’s figuring it out in their own way. The human experience.” — Oliver Malcolm

“Skywalker” might be Oliver Malcolm’s most personal track yet, written at a point in Oliver’s life where he made the brave decision leaving a successful production career to become an artist in his own right. The video is an homage of his new home, a sleepy countryside in Great Britain, and a smaller, tight knit crew of artistic bandits who have built solace in common soundscapes and an appetite for living unapologetically. “Skywalker” will appear on Oliver’s debut project out later this year and follows the release of previously acclaimed singles like “Switched Up,” “The Machine” and most recently “Outside” — a pensive track reflecting on the tough times of Covid.
