The Bedroom is former Eatenbybears man Olan Stephens, a 21-year-old from Galway. Since the Belfast band split earlier this year, Stephens turned attention to this solo project. Nialler9 has the skinny on him from when he debuted four months ago with the excellent ‘Basquait’. Now Stephens is back with ‘The Big Up’, a big left-field slice of Tom Vek-inspired pop music. “This is exactly what you want, this could be everything you need, this might be where you’re s’posed to go, this might be who you’re s’posed to be,” he sings, accompanied by an offbeat brass section. The accompanying video, which he produced himself and was filmed by Richard Butler, is just as weird as the track… but I can’t stop listening or watching!
