Ollie Wride w/ Special Guests
Following his SOLD OUT show at London's Camden Assembly, Ollie Wride performs a single show in Glasgow following the release of his debut album 'Thanks In Advance' through NewRetroWave Records. Having also sold out The Garage and Electric Brixton last year as lead singer / songwriter with synthwave act FM-84, Wride performs for the first time in Glasgow - expect live band performances of songs from both his debut and penned hits from the FM-84 stable.
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’.
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.
