Olya’s Euro-Pop Dance track Hollywood pays tribute to the infamous land of entertainers and big dreams.
Blending the progressions of pop, with a heavy bass-line and a hard-house synth-track that begs for remix, the single tells a story of nostalgia and personal optimism intertwined.
From classic, somewhat retro production details, including the familiar echo of riffs after each vocal phrase, the song builds up and drops in with a family-friendly hook that’s impossibly catchy.
Attempting to draw a distinction between those who are faking it, and those who are making it, the song tackles the concept of living what you preach – entering the promised land with the right level of determination and focus. At the same time though, the whole thing feels far less serious than these qualities imply. It’s fun, it’s recognisable, it’s vintage by nature but fresh in terms of being an introduction to the artist. The single does exactly what it sets out to do. An ear-worm for pop fans past and present.
