Ollie Wride - Silhouettes

"Like a thief in the night, I'll wait for you"

I can't even tell you how excited I am about Ollie Wride. In my opinion, he's everything Mika failed to be. He specializes in the same big, glossy 80's pop but his voice and songwriting really make him a force to be reckoned with. His uptempos, like the addictive Head Rush, are among the best music I've heard all year. Silhouettes is a bit different, and shows off his pensive, subtle side. It's a gorgeous, atmospheric 80's synth ballad reminiscent of such greats as Roxy Music's Avalon. His flawless vocals are used to great effect here. Best of all, though, the guy seems to have a real idea of where he's going with all of this. There's an undeniable style to him. So important when dealing with this kind of music.
