UK based Indie-ambient folk artist Ollie Dixon releases brand new single Harbour which completes the 4 song release of his latest EP Islands.

Islands, released in full – with the latest single Harbour, on 25th November 22, marks the closure of a highly successful year for Ollie who has now become a staple in the South West music scene.

Inspired by the likes of Bon Iver, Daughter, Bears Den and Novo Amor, the solo artist is now performing as a band and joined forces with co-writer Lee Croad. The music he is creating is reverb-soaked atmospherics and warm-delayed acoustics, which blends indie acoustic folk and ambient-rock. Mixing these two genres together they have set themselves apart from the norm, creating a very unique, distinct sound, with reverb-soaked atmospherics, warm-delayed acoustics and narrative driven vocals.

2022 has seen the singles from the EP ‘Islands’, ‘St Agnes’ and now Harbour featured on Spotify’s Fresh Finds Folk and New Music Friday Editorial playlists, and Ollie successfully securing his place on the UK live and festival circuit performing across multiple UK festivals including ‘Between the Trees Festival’ and playing the main stage at ‘Oceanfest’.

Having received support on his singles from the likes of BBC Introducing & Amazing Radio UK/USA “Islands” is an impressive follow up EP and is currently hitting over 120,000 streams on Spotify in under a year, and is set to grow even further with the final single release.

In the first week of release “Harbour” is already landing on some very big new music playlists and secured a number 1 in the ITunes charts in Norway. Harbour has also been selected as the as the ‘Hotly Tipped’ track by the BBC Introducing in the South West and selected as one of the converted Fresh On The Net’s top 10 tracks where it has been described as – ‘everything slows and the otherworldliness is emphasised as enigmatic sounds drift into play. This is a track that can genuinely be called evocative’ – Fresh On The Net
