Waterville, Ohio indie-folk trio Oliver Hazard release the new single “Ballerina” off their forthcoming full-length album via Nettwerk. Stream the band’s most experimental track to date, featuring an uplifting chorus and synthesizers from the 1980s HERE.

Oliver Hazard writes earnest and emotional music that you can’t help but sing along to. “This song, like so many, is simply about the loss of a relationship – but it’s more of an ode, stating it’s okay, it’s for the best, but it will never lose its value. The beginning only has a guitar riff. The overall creation of the song is a sum of the band’s parts, each member adding their own individual idea and experience to the track,” states Oliver Hazard about “Ballerina.”

Oliver Hazard is currently on the road with The 502s for the Fresh Squeezed Happiness Tour. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the band’s website HERE.

About Oliver Hazard:

The story of Waterville, OH indie-folk trio Oliver Hazard – Michael Belazis (vocals, guitar), Griffin McCulloch (vocals, keys) and Devin East (vocals, guitar) – is the digital age’s version of classic band mythmaking. One member of the band came home to Ohio after leading camping trips in California and decided to make an album with two childhood friends. They won a Facebook raffle to record one song at a studio. Instead, they played their whole album straight through once, resulting in their debut LP 34 N River (2018). The Fader called the album a “folk-pop masterpiece” and the band was booked at Bonnaroo and Mountain Jam shortly thereafter. In 2019, the band released their 6 track EP, The Flood, which Billboard called a “souvenir.” The band is gearing up to release their new LP later 2023, which is the work of 3 individual singers, songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, who share an organic connection in the craft — sensibilities that yield music that’s harmonic, haunting and also ambitious and surprising.
