Oliver Bach returns with his latest single 'Break From Myself'
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
‘Break From Myself’ is the latest in a string of releases from German songwriter and producer Oliver Bach. Written during the height of the pandemic, while locked down, the song captures the feeling of being home alone, but rather than this being a dispiriting or lonely experience, Bach lifts up his eyes to the possibility of breaking out, taking a break from ourselves as we party, relax and escape the sense of isolation created by covid.
Bach explains: ‘Leave your day behind and enter the relaxing feeling of leaving yourself behind - that sounds impossible? I wanted to put my finger on the scars of feeling home alone and lift your eyes to entering a new self. A self that encourages others to break out, to live the night instead of the day, to dance in your body’s rhythms that has for too long been forgotten…’
Oliver Bach grew up in Zweibrucken, Germany, where his earliest musical influences were 80s chart hits and his father’s preferred soul, funk and blues. Offered the chance to learn a musical instrument, he was less than enthusiastic until his father bought an Atari ST and Notator software. The combination of computer and synthesizer was the musical spark that he’d been waiting for.
Simultaneously the electronic music scene in Germany was exploding with techno and house music, and Bach began to dj at house parties, playing techno and house and deepening his interest in electronic music. As a producer, he explored different styles and genres and began remixing tracks for other musicians before beginning to write and release his own original songs in 2016.
His songs have charted in the UK, Germany, Switzerland and many more. His influences include Michael Jackson, particularly the albums produced by Quincy Jones, as well as, more recently, ARTBAT, CamelPhat, Adriatique and Innellea, and he is now signed to German electronic label NoSodaPlease.
