New Music: Oliver St Louis Goes Deep For His New Single, Runnin’ Wild

skmkmf

Washington Born Musician, Oliver St Louis returns with new material for 2020 after a long world tour and collborations with artists such as Hudson Mohawke, C2C, Laura Mvula and German rockers, AnnenMayKantereit.

His latest single, ‘Runnin’ Wild’ sees him team up with music producer, Oddisee through London based record label, First Word Records. It begins with the adrenaline-racing rhythm of ‘Runnin Wild’, and with Oddisee behind the boards, this track exemplifies Olivier’s unique take on alternative soul. This is a classically-structured piece of uptempo soul-funk with a rock edge, laced with Olivier’s sweet harmonies and fuzzed-out guitar licks throughout, and mixed down with a little 2020 boom bap thump. A prime example of quality contemporary alt-soul.

When asked his thoughts on his artistry, Olivier St. Louis simply states “no punches pulled, no compromises, just me”.

Have a listen to the single below and let us know your thoughts:
