Oliver Cronin ignites the airwaves with his anthemic new single 'Burning House'

  • 3 min read

Oliver Cronin, the rising star of Australian dark-pop, is set to set the music scene ablaze once again with his latest single, 'Burning House'.

Following the successful release of 'Hello Goodbye' earlier this year, Cronin continues to captivate audiences with his pulsating synth soundscape and confident lyricism. Released via Warner Music Australia, 'Burning House' marks a significant milestone for Cronin as it is his first collaboration with Warner Records, the label behind recent chart-toppers such as Benson Boone and Teddy Swims.

In 'Burning House', Cronin delivers a message of resilience and love amidst chaos, weaving together an anthemic melody that is bound to resonate with listeners. With shades of Justin Bieber's emotive style, Cronin layers upbeat production with romantic lyricism, expressing the sentiment that as long as you're with the one you love, everything will be alright - even in the midst of a burning house.

Speaking about the song, he shared, "My producer Skimmy played me the beat for it the first day I got to LA, and I immediately knew I wanted to use it for the album. We got distracted making the rest of the album but every time we got in the car I'd get him to play that beat for me again. We got to the last couple days of the trip and we decided to give it a go, at that point in time I didn’t have enough love songs on the record so we went into it with that in mind. The fun thing about the process of this song is there was absolutely no pressure because we had basically already written the whole album, so we could just fuck around and have fun and see what we came up with. I wrote it with Mason Dane, Dan Elkayan and Matt Hall and the song is about sticking by a loved one, your partner, your best friend, your ride or die really, through thick or thin. We knew it was something special as soon as we made it.”

With 'Burning House', Oliver Cronin cements his position as a formidable force in the world of dark-pop, offering listeners a glimpse into his electrifying sound and infectious energy. As the flames of anticipation rise, one thing is certain - Oliver Cronin is a name you'll want to remember.

Cronin's meteoric rise to fame can be attributed to his innate talent and relentless work ethic. In 2023, he achieved viral success on TikTok with remixes and live streams, amassing over 670K followers on the platform. His interpretations of popular tracks by artists like Doja Cat and RAYE introduced him to a broader audience, while his original releases, including 'Speed Bump' and '1,2,3', showcased his versatility and knack for crafting infectious melodies.

On the touring front, Cronin's performances alongside Nessa Barrett and at SXSW Sydney solidified his reputation as a dynamic live performer. With over 20 million combined streams and 570K monthly listeners on Spotify, Cronin's music has resonated with audiences worldwide, garnering attention on international charts and playlists.

As Cronin gears up for a whirlwind promotional tour across the UK, Germany, America, and Asia, the anticipation for his debut album continues to mount. With each release, he reaffirms his status as one of the most exciting artists to watch in the music industry.
