The sonic alter ego of singer Oliver Feighan, fStay Over has created music that stands out from the crowd and promises to be one of the more interesting projects you will hear.
Substream had already teamed up with Stay Over in April to exclusively release their single “Happy”, which later received a music video and became a viral hit. “Happy” has organically amassed over a million streams and received a placement on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. Snapchat presented them worldwide in one of their lenses.
Today, Stay Over has revived the skater aesthetic of the 90s / early 2000s in his latest video for the single “IDKATL”. The video was directed by Sid Singh and produced by Cocoon Malibu and can be viewed below. “IDKATL” speaks of self-medication to numb negative thoughts and overcome difficult moments instead of confronting and processing them.
“One of my all time favorite movies is Lords Of Dogtown,” says Stay Over. “The whole aesthetic of the movie and that time in the 90s seemed real and raw and authentic. We wanted to convey that for the video. The director Sid Singh really brought the whole vision to life and executed it exactly as it was in our heads. It’s vulnerable and honest, like my music, that allows me to find out who I am. It’s my way of processing my emotions and exploring my true, honest feelings, but I also hope that my music can make people feel a little less alone. If we are honest we can all open up to one another. When we are open, we see things differently. We see things as love and light. “
