I’m in Love by Oh. [New Single Release]

Oh. aka Olivia Hadjiioannou - Cinema 4D - I'm in Love

I’m in Love

A new song for your summer playlist 2017! The “Love Will Heal” series is finished with two new songs, “I’m in Love” and “Deserted Eyes”.

The first. “I’m in Love” goes on pre-order today and will be released on July 28, 2017!

Introspective violins introduce the sonic landscape of Oh.’s beautiful new Indie Pop single, I’m in Love” while a minimal hand crafted beat sets the stage for pondering sultry vocals as a playful piano leads on to an ecstatic chorus. The song explores how “being in love” amplifies our vulnerabilities and exposes the gestures and stances we make in order to conceal and hide our inhibitions.

Background

Honestly…this was not an easy song to complete.

Right before mixing and mastering, I pressed pause and moved on to the Prog Metal EP, “Metallia”, coming out this Fall.

Obviously, from the title, you might assume, I was in love when I wrote it, and it is true, I was engaged – if you can believe that! And yes, I pressed pause on the mixing when that engagement ended. You know how it is when you are in the studio and you’ve listened to the song a hundred times and you need to go out and take a walk to reset your hearing, I guess the same goes for one’s heart.

You will hear moments of joy and sadness, a mix of rhythmic piano and introspective violins. I’m sure you know how love makes everything more amplified. The light and the dark within us. It also has an uncanny ability to reveal our vulnerable spots and blatantly shows us how we keep ourselves away from beauty and Love itself (not just the love of another person) through our static beliefs and insecurities.

I'm in Love - Summer Playlist 2017The song has a beating heart. There are handmade percussions made on a cardboard box, glass bottles and my hands. We gesture and create stances to conceal and hide our inhibitions in order to stay safely in our “box” of knowledge. Rather than becoming a better person through the relationship; we also forget it’s not only that you are going through a process but the other person is as well! I’m sure you know what I mean.

An animated music video accompanies the release which has some very cool special effects!

Also, as I mentioned above, we created a 3D experience so when you go to this awesome page on my website you can get a free download of the song – IF (smile) you find the code in the 3D world!

I also know that some of you who support my work may want to hear the song right away so you can go and pre-order the single by pressing the buttons below. Otherwise, you can wait and stream it on Spotify when it is released

Lyrics

Pain I see, and all the time I was thinking in you
There’s something wrong
Now I know what’s true
I was hiding in the darkness
No way to let it go

To what degree I see this time
There’s a meaning to this
Fighting all life long
Will get along
Will pull it through
I swear

The earth may speed and spin around
And I’ll never let you go

Mm I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love

Mm I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love

Deep in me, I could hear a voice inside me saying
Oh god please, tell me there’s no need to worry
Cause fighting is the darkness, how do I let you go

Though nothing changed in me
I’m wise to the world this time and
I’m more than enough you see
You’re the fool in silence
I swear

The earth may speed and spin around
And I’ll never let you go

Mm I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love

Mm I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love

To what degree I see this time
There’s a meaning to this
Fighting all life long
Will get along
Will pull it through
I swear

The earth may speed and spin around
And I’ll never let you go

Mm I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love

Mm I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love

Now I know what’s true
I was hiding in the darkness
No way to let it go

Reviews

Nice track from Oh. I love the video (and the cool 3D add on). It is little things like this (keeping up with technological trends) that can separate an artist from the rest of the pack. All in all, this is a lovely song with beautiful vocals and instrumentation. The violins give the track a timeless feel and mixed with the electronic beat, you have a song that should hold up to the test of time. – SD Hox on Fluence

Mystical feel led by the strings and piano, with the soaring vocals alternating between subdued lushness and very soaring, intense emotion. The exhilarating, vocal-led chorus reminds me fondly of Kate Bush’s more ferocious efforts. There’s no doubt that the track should appeal to publications fond of avant-garde-leaning pop. – Mike Mineo on Fluence

The classical opening is lovely. Gorgeous voice!! The overall feel is spirit and emotion. I love the tug and pull of the quiet and loud vocals. Really evocative! A beautiful song full of feeling.Larry Lootsteen

CD Metallia - Oh. aka Olivia Hadjiioannou

“Metallia” by Oh. is an epical prog-metal composition in six parts. A multi-layered sonic piece of ravishing solo electric guitars, time-bending tempo shifts, grooving bass lines and deranged drums.

This instrumental progressive metal album will reveal its intricacies and hidden depths over time. It will extract from your mind pure visions, to mend your mental pictures, preen presumptions and to elicit an element of the unexpected…. because that is what will transmute your subliminal mind map into a remarkable blueprint which will lead you from wherever you are now, to wherever you want to be.
