"...big, stark and weird, and when it comes to rock, that's exactly what I want..."
[White Finger E.P. is] "Industrial-Euro... a cohesive punch to the gut"
"...vacillating between wicked guitar riffs and haunting melodies backed by almost poetic lyrics - I was captivated from first listen"
"[Triggerfish] reminds me of 18 year old sex, a short quick grind...then you say, what just happened there... let's do it again..."
"...so much energy, the right amount of swagger and a hell of a
lot of noise for one bloke and one guitar..."
Cutting his teeth on garage bands, piano strings and chamber orchestras, Oliver Richard now fuses bipolar electric guitar with angelic vocals, fat synths and tripped out percussion to create a one man wall of sound.
In 2013, Oliver’s First Take Cover Sessions (five YouTube covers) won the attention of Grimtale Records (USA), who then released his debut single “Triggerfish” on 7” vinyl plus two tracks for their 2014 cassette only sampler album including “Darling Cory”.
In 2016, his “White Finger” E.P. was released on 10″ vinyl, and after a year of live shows, was followed in 2018 by a second 7″ single, “Hungry“. Soon after, Oliver’s song “Approach Me Like A Lion” was chosen by David-Bowie-producer Tony Visconti as the winner of a global songwriting competition. This became the B-side to his 2019 7″ single “They Don’t Deserve Me”.
Come 2020, and Oliver’s fourth single Fierce Ghosts was released on Halloween, featuring guest vocals and guitar from Craig John Davidson and a total remix from Dr Creamy Lips on the B-side of the 10″ record.
