Ollie Wride performs a single show in London following the release of his debut album ‘Thanks In Advance’ through NewRetroWave Records. Having sold out The Garage and Electric Brixton earlier this year as lead singer / songwriter with synth pop act FM-84, Wride returns for his solo debut, expect live band performances of songs from both his debut and FM-84 back catalogue.
Ollie Wride’s debut album ‘Thanks In Advance’ recently stormed up both the Bandcamp charts as well as the iTunes Album Pop Chart. His debut standalone release is truly spectacular, ranging from smooth power-ballads to upbeat and addictive synth anthems – his fascination with memories, nostalgia’s pin up’s and assuming character led concepts of triumphing over adversity are on full display with an adrenaline filled debut LP. It’s a balancing act that delves into the hallmarks of vintage pop, whilst keeping a firm eye on the world today – an album for synth lovers, much like the cult hit ‘Running In The Night’, which he penned for FM-84’s album ‘Atlas’. became one of the more influential artists of the “retro-wave” genre.
Wride’s live performance is both exhilarating and captivating, embodying the role of the otherworldly outsider and the underdog – providing a vehicle for electro-pop songs that are more than a nostalgia trip.
