Olivia Lunny’s personal touch on the EP is evident as she encapsulates the rollercoaster of emotions that come with independence, love, and heartbreak. In her own words, “Writing this EP helped me navigate the growing pains I’ve experienced in the past few years – moving to a new city, being surrounded by new faces, and keeping up with my career heavily fueled the inspiration for these five songs.”

She continues, “I’m so excited to take fans on a journey with this EP and share my acoustic roots with songs like ‘SECRETS’. and new wave tracks like ‘FIX THIS’ & ‘HEARTBREAK ON REPEAT’. I’m so thrilled to have Bryce Vine on the lead single ‘FIX THIS’. I’ve loved Bryce’s storytelling and songwriting for years now. His verse and vibe really gave the song the vibrancy and energy it needed.”

Bryce Vine reciprocates the excitement, saying, “You know I love talented musicians from up North, and Olivia Lunny is no exception! When we first met, Olivia told me she was a fan, and after this collaboration, I’m a huge Olivia Lunny stan! Our song ‘FIX THIS’ is a banger, and I’m really proud I get to support a strong female artist on her new EP.”

Our thoughts on Olivia Lunny’s “HEARTBREAK ON REPEAT” EP

Shining from the very start, Olivia Lunny captivates her audience by kickstarting her EP off with “FIX THIS”, the collaboration with Bryce Vine. The addicting track showcases both artists’ incredible artistry, allowing their vocals to be spotlighted and blended, creating a beautiful conceptual sound. The incredibly relatable track delves into the start of a breakup when a relationship just isn’t working and one person wants to find a way to fix it, but it’s just not happening – it takes two to tango, to work it out, to fix it. We’ve all been there, so we all can identify with this track, and these two incredible artists flood the track with heartfelt emotion that truly hits listeners in the heart.

The title track follows next bringing a few haunting melodies – right on time for Halloween – around Lunny’s gorgeous vocals where she hits her falsetto, at times. The infectious dance tune increases as the chorus kicks in with Lunny promoting self-empowerment and independence. Fierce, sexy, and knows exactly who she is, Olivia Lunny is set to leave that person behind as she moves forward in her life.

This is followed by the unforgettable track, “TIMEZONE”, which has a nostalgic Y2K vibe to it, especially with the awesome bridge. Lunny fully impresses with her vocals and as she unlocks relatable lyrics about long-distance relationships. Connecting with listeners around the world – we’ve all been there – this incredible singer-songwriter makes us wish we were also in her timezone. The ending chorus hits different impressing on a whole other level and showcasing how amazing this rising superstar really is.

Track four is “GAMEBOY” – which is a Nintendo games console from the ’00s and something a lot of us ’90s babies had. The song is more stripped back, starting off with an acoustic guitar. This subtle backing track allows Lunny to fully showcase her beautiful vocals as she compares herself to a Gameboy and how she’d love for someone to plug a game in and play her every day.

Written by Lunny and AJ Healey, they manage to show their flawless songwriting ability, encapsulating everything to do with gaming and personifying it in relation to her being a Gameboy. Clever and inspiring, this track certainly delivers, but in so many more ways than one as a deeper dive into the lyrics suggests sexual connotations that really take naughtiness to a whole new level.

The EP ends with the track “SECRETS”, which takes the backing track down even more – where “GAMEBOY” can be considered an upbeat pop-acoustic track, “SECRETS” is more of an acoustic pop-ballad track. It starts with a slow acoustic guitar rhythm, that Lunny matches with vocally during the bridge giving a superb vocal run that hits her gorgeous falsetto. She then keeps that upper range for the chorus, chilling listeners to the bone! The sweet honest track opens up about opening up in a relationship.

If anything, Olivia Lunny has shown her art in all its forms on this “HEARTBREAK ON REPEAT” EP. She has delivered her vocals, her lyrics, and her emotions in a number of upbeat dance tracks, alongside acoustic guitar anthems. She’s one of the most real artists around showcasing her beautiful artistry and empowering her fans and listeners. Vocals for days, she is a powerhouse vocalist who deserves to go on to become a global success, and it seems she’s taking steps in that direction and we’re excited to follow her career path. We’ll be listening to this EP on repeat for the next few weeks.
