Bristol based multi-instrumentalist and producer Oliver Wilde recently shared ‘Bifida’, his latest track and newest material since the release of his acclaimed second album, Red Tide Opal in the Loose End Womb.
‘Bifida’ marked Wilde’s return from a self-imposed two year hiatus and the musician has now released its follow-up, ‘Blit Scratch’. The new track features growling vocal effects over Wilde’s brand of lo-fi experimental pop.
Now fully realised as an expanded band, Oliver Wilde is soon to headline a UK tour, including sold out shows at Bristol’s Colston Hall 2. The band will be making several festival appearances throughout the summer, including The Great Escape, Latitude Festival and End of The Road.
Wilde’s second album Red Tide Opal In The Loose End Womb, received significant radio play on BBC 6 Music, with album tracks “Play & Be Saved” and “Stomach Full Of Cats” also featured as part of the popular station’s regular playlist. On the record’s release The Flux Presents named it their ‘Album of the Week’. You can read the full review here.
