Alt electronic artist Oli Gosh released her debu 6 track album, ‘Silva’, on 14 May. The album was recorded collaboration with analogue-based synth producer, The Naive Machine.

Oli Gosh started as an actress, training at RADA, and performed in such roles as Juliet in ‘Romeo and Juliet’, and in Dirty Dancing, in London’s West End. She made the switch from acting to music after finding herself spending more and more time jamming with her brother in their band – she was hooked.

Oli found her calling on the dance floor of Amnesia in Ibiza, where she discovered Techno, and decided her focus had to be on alternative, electronic music, and she started writing with her fellow South East London producer, The Naive Machine. From there she started writing and performing with Danglo, another producer from South East London, including a live show supporting Elderbook, at Omeara.

‘Silva’ combines Oli Gosh’s ethereal vocals with The Naive Machine’s many layered analogue synth production. The album is a metaphor for its mix of love, lust, passion, and pain, and features dark intense layers over flamenco samples.
