Olivver The Kid Joins The American Youth Tour, Releases Attica ’71 Video

Bryan Sammis, otherwise known as Olivver the Kid, has come a long way since deciding to leave his band The Neighbourhood and venture out on his own. As Mostly Junk Food puts it, “Olivver the Kid has made a name for himself as the LA King of Revvival with a successful noir-streak of brooding, smoked out pop with an ear for infectious hooks and nostalgia.”

This year, Olivver the Kid joins Young Rising Sons and Halsey on The American Youth Tour, a springtime romp that begins in California, ends in Massachusetts and criss-crosses the country in between. Some dates are already sold out.

At each show on tour, Olivver the Kid will be doing a special meet and greet exclusively for his fans. More information can be found here.

In addition, Olivver the Kid is gearing up for the release of the video for his hit single “Attica ’71.” The video premiered exclusively via Buzzbands LA on February 4. Also, check out Olivver the Kid’s video series, starting with “Purge.” Then feast your eyes on “Lucy” and “Keep it Sacred.”

There’s a good chance that Olivver the Kid is still giddy over the success of his debut EP, Freak, which came out last October to rave reviews. “Freak is downright irresistible,” affirms The 405, “with its shimmering synths and melodies that will get stuck in your head for days, and paired with his wind-swept, gorgeous vocals gives you a track that sounds like it’s best fit to soundtrack a John Hughes film.”

Listen to Freak here.
