Belgian pop superstar Max Colombie, a.k.a. Oscar and the Wolf announces new album The Shimmer, due 22nd October on [PIAS] Recordings. Along with the cover art and the 11-song track listing of his highly anticipated third album, Max also unveils the brand-new single ‘Oliver’ and its accompanying video, which he also directed.
The sultry new single shows Max at the top of his game. A tropical beat welcomes Colombie’s sensual voice while an alluring guitar draws us further into his dreamworld. ‘Oliver’ is a post-heatwave sundown set to shimmering synths with Colombie acting as a tantalizing snake charmer.
Enter Colombie’s world, and you’ll discover a uniquely dazzling and shimmering fusion of contemporary R&B and a more European electro-pop sensibility, uniting shivery melody, shifting beats and vocals steeped in drama, sensuality and yearning.
Colombie describes, “a twilight zone where it doesn’t sound dark nor happy. It’s like the name Oscar and the Wolf; it’s a balance between light and dark, this perfect combination between the sun and the moon. It’s beautiful and scary at the same time.”
