Donning bright, fluoro-coloured jackets, kooky sunglasses and an admittedly out-there bowl cut, Oliver Tree is by all appearances a walking meme. But outside of his appearance, his music is fairly mainstream pop in sound and seems to draw inspiration from artists like Dominic Fike and Gus Dapperton.
Tree released his debut album, Ugly is Beautiful, in 2020 and tracks like the bubblegum pop-esque 'Life Goes On' and the alternative rock-inspired 'Let Me Down' quickly became viral on TikTok. He claimed that he would retire from music after the release of the album, but has since gone on to release further music videos and singles.
Catch his performance at Splendour in the Grass, or grab tickets to the Melbourne sideshow at the Forum on July 21. General public tickets go on sale from 9am on Monday, February 14 through the Ticketek website.
