RESCHEDULED: The Ollie Wride show at Lafayette London is being rescheduled to Sunday 5th December due to the ongoing national restrictions. All original tickets will remain valid for the new date. If you are unable to attend, please contact your point of purchase for a refund.
Ollie Wride announces his biggest solo show to date in London following a spectacular sold out show at the Camden Assembly on 16 November. The fantastic new venue Lafayette opens its doors in February 2020 and will play host to the British born performer. Wride's debut solo album 'Thanks In Advance' through NewRetroWave Records follows sold out shows on both sides of the Atlantic as lead singer / songwriter with synthwave giants FM-84.
Expect live band performances of songs from both his debut and penned hits from the FM-84 catalogue.
Ollie Wride's debut album 'Thanks In Advance’ stormed up both the Bandcamp charts as well as the iTunes Album Electronic & Pop Charts earning the top spot. His debut standalone release is truly spectacular, ranging from smooth power-ballads to upbeat and addictive 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 hits 'Running In The Night’ and “Never Stop", 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-rock pop songs that are more than a nostalgia trip.
