OLD FASHIONED LOVER BOY – “OH MY LOVE”
A Spill Exclusive Canadian Video Premiere
From emigrant railway worker to Spotify indie phenomenon, Italian singer-songwriter Alessandro Panzeri, aka Old Fashioned Lover Boy – with no reference to the Queen song – has just released his second album, Our Life Will Be Made Of Simple Things. Originally out only in Italy, it soon started echoing outside of the peninsula, following the beautiful single Oh My Love.
A tender and soulful ballad made of environmental samples, electronic beats, dreamy voices and folk guitars – reminiscent of the early Bon Iver – Oh My Love was selected and play-listed on Spotify Fresh Finds, getting an unexpected amount of plays and exposure across the UK and US. The beautiful animated video was directed by Studio Ianus.
“It is my personal tale dedicated to the beauty of simple things. It represents the end of the obstinate pursuit of happiness through an endless escape. It is about the great self-fulfilment that comes from putting down your roots, settling down and taking pleasure in small achievements, like the love and affection of a partner, your family and lifetime friends, the great journey to return to your spiritual home and it celebrates the beautiful melancholy of life”.
