Oliver Rees – Another Fool


Oliver Rees, the Leeds-based rapper and producer, is back with his latest track, “Another Fool”. Drawing inspiration from the nylon strings of Andalusia, “Another Fool” pairs flamenco guitar with a commanding boom-bap baseline.

‘At its core, “Another Fool” delves into the mundane struggles, repetitive mistakes, and uphill tribulations that often accompany the artistic journey,’ explains Rees. ‘It serves as a canvas for the stream of consciousness that reflects the inner monologue of a struggling artist—myself included.’ The track’s poignant hook “might make sense to another fool some day” works in tandem with the track’s thought-provoking cover art, featuring an astronaut untethered from his ship, symbolising the isolation experienced by artists striving to find their place in the world.

This theme is further explored in the accompanying music video, which follows the protagonist, Mike, as he navigates through a series of mundane and disheartening experiences.

“I wanted to illustrate how one can often feel like a spectator in their own life,’ says Rees. ‘Through Mike’s journey, we witness the consequences of complacency and the harsh realities of becoming disconnected from ambitions.”

With “Another Fool”, Oliver Rees invites listeners to reflect on the universal themes of perseverance, resilience, and the relentless pursuit of artistic expression. The track is a testament to Rees’s natural ability to craft compelling narratives that resonate deeply with listeners.
