bryan sammis has kept busy with his solo endeavors since exiting the neighbourhood earlier this year. as olivver, sammis released freak, a slightly uneven ep that draws from his former band’s nocturnal, monochromatic aesthetic and channels it into muted, downtempo synth-pop. curiously, his best material might be hidden in a small collection of b-sides. the fourth and final song, “now you know,” was released earlier tonight and finds olivver exploring an abbreviated pop idea before diverting his path down an ambient, bass-laden dark alley. take a listen below.
