Sometimes it is important to get away from it all. To escape the demands of our careers. To venture out and meet new people. To explore new countries and experience new cultures. And in the process, feel reinvigorated, be able to test our limits, and discover who we are. This is exactly what Jolé – a.k.a. Josh Oliver – has been doing for the better part of the year.
After years of touring and writing songs balanced with a regular job, Oliver became worn down by the hectic schedule and was in desperate need of a break. It was not just a holiday the Brighton-based singer-songwriter sought, but an adventure to see the world and one of self-discovery. These feelings are shared in a series of three songs that Oliver has slowly released since the start of the year. The final installment from the trilogy is “A Year of Ages”, which we are pleased to premiere today.
The song is the start of Oliver’s journey, taking his suitcase and trusty guitar in tow and while casting aside all doubts. With hints of Frightened Rabbit’s pop-rock and the vibrancy of Age of Adz-era Sufjan Stevens, “A Year of Ages” is a stupendous, uplifting single. It is an anthem for every soul dreaming of her own great adventure, his own escape, and her own moment of self-discovery. Oliver found his, and now he offers us the motivation to seek ours.
Hear “A Year of Ages” below. The song officially will be released this Friday, July 1st.
