When British singer-songwriter OLIVER PINDER unleashed his first single STRESSED in October 2022, after an artistic hiatus, the 22-year-old could not predict the wave of appraisal that followed the release. Starting his artistic journey afresh by adopting a new creative approach, his sound has since transformed from its dark, indie-folk roots into an eclectic mix of guitar-driven alternative slacker indie anthems and heartfelt piano ballads. Encompassing the earnest lyricism of artists Matilda Mann and Jeremy Zucker, as well as the glitchy synth- wave instrumental layers akin to that of The Japanese House and Holly Humberstone, Pinder’s music captures the anxieties of today’s younger generation.
Growing up in the West Yorkshire city of Bradford, Pinder began to utilise the process of writing music as an emotional outlet at the age of eight, after receiving his first guitar costing just short of ten pounds. As his parents fostered his musical passion, this beloved instrument would accompany Pinder on family holidays to Kirkcudbright in Scotland, alongside a soundtrack consisting of Neil Diamond, Don Mclean, and Meatloaf. The passing of Pinder’s father, when the young musician was 12 years old, fuelled his determination to pursue a career in music and make his late parent proud. By his mid-teens Pinder had attracted attention from promoters across the nation eager to offer him support slots for established musicians such as Billie Marten, Embrace, and JP Cooper.
