Oli Barton and the Movement release their latest single 'Get Out' // review

London based alternative quintet ‘Oli Barton and the Movement’ have never shied away from what really matters and that’s very apparent in their latest offering. With an array of music already in the bag, the band make a comeback with their most important single to date.

‘Get Out’ is the first instalment from their forthcoming album ‘Pipe Dreams’. The message behind this song is so very important which I'll get onto in a bit but what you'll hear initially is the musicality of the track. It’s a punchy blend of colourful pop, bold hooks and rock and roll star vocals with an anthemic chorus that’ll have you singing along in no time. Think nostalgic indie rock that you can dance to. Though it’s hard-hitting lyrics and an underlying significant theme does give it a whole other perspective.

Sexual harassment and assault is a massive issue in the music industry and has been for quite some time. Oli Barton has always been vocal about his support towards victims and ‘Get Out’ raises awareness of this. It strives to build a better live music environment post-covid. For the first month, all streaming profits will go to the organisation ‘Women In Music’. As well as this, the band will release a commissioned print once their album is released and all profits will go to the charity. This weighty track is anthemic not only music-wise but message-wise and it's something everyone needs to get behind.

You can hear ‘Get Out’ now on all major streaming platforms:
