Singer-songwriter Oliver Downes is thrilled to launch his debut album ‘ultraviolet’, with an intimate evening of acoustic song. Formerly of the Blue Mountains, now based in Melbourne, Oliver blends intricate, percussive piano playing with soaring, hummable melodies and thought-provoking lyrics.

Recorded following a hugely successful Pozible campaign, ‘ultraviolet’ is a lush cut of richly orchestrated chamber pop, featuring the talents of Oliver’s sister, Holly Downes (double bass) and Chris Stone (violin) of art-folk trio The String Contingent, who will join him at Hotel Blue.

Traversing territory reminiscent of artists as diverse as Ben Caplan, Radiohead or The Dirty Three, ‘ultraviolet’ offers a rich blend of dreamy ballads and exhilaratingly kinetic acoustic pop, charting a musical passage through the darkness into the light.

“Downes’ compositions and arrangements create nebulous, ethereal soundscapes, deftly woven by the tensile orchestration… Give your mind permission to wander” – The Music
