Thomas Oliver is back with a brand new single, 'Coffee'.
The song, co-written by fellow Kiwi Mitch James, is full of catchy hooks and colourful production.
Where do you call home?
I live mostly in Berlin and Amsterdam at the moment. I love living in Europe, but Wellington is still more "home" than either of those places. But I also say I'm going "home" when I go to Hawke's Bay, where I grew up.
What inspired your new song ‘Coffee’?
'Coffee' is co-written with my friend and fellow New Zealand songwriter, Mitch James. We wrote it in an Airbnb in Berlin when Mitch was visiting.
The love of coffee is the perfect metaphor for the love for the right person; no matter how many mornings you drink coffee, you never stop wanting it. It is one of the few things you can do every day, and still look forward to, just like good love. Mitch and I had a great writing connection, because he is a master of pop hooks, and I seem to have a strength in refining ideas, so together we were quite a force and we enjoyed every minute of the process!
What's your proudest musical moment?
Winning the APRA Silver Scroll for my song, If I Move To Mars, is a very proud moment for sure! That's the one that comes to mind right now.
What's a Kiwi song you're loving at the moment?
Forever & Always by Written By Wolves.
What's one artist you would love to collaborate with?
Gary Clark Jnr.
