Oliver Wilde – “Play & Be Saved” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / March 12, 2014

Bristol songwriter and producer Oliver Wilde caught some glowing UK press (and comparisons to the likes of Mark Linkous and Bradford Cox) for his modern approach to psych-pop on last year’s debut album A Brief Introduction To Unnatural Lightyears. Wilde’s already back with sophomore release Red Tide Opal In The Loose End Womb this spring, and today we present lead single “Play & Be Saved.” It’s a glorious phantasmagoria that hits hard and effervesces brightly, and you ought to listen to it below.

The “Play & Be Saved” single is out 4/14, and Red Tide Opal In The Loose End Womb follows 5/5, both via Howling Owl Records.
