Oliver Wilde shares "You're So Kool-Aid" from new LP Post-Frenz Container Buzz

Oliver Wilde is sharing "You're So Kool-Aid", the latest preview of upcoming third record Post-Frenz Container Buzz.

The track arrives after the mesmerising wonk of "Good Kind Of Froze", which Wilde calls a "purse-lipped self analysis, a kind of brand-new manic conflict..."

"You're So Kool-Aid" continues Wilde's sonic revolution. Squelchy bass, serrated hooks, cottony layers, and many more myriad titbits all get smooshed together in a wonderfully off-kilter explosion of odd-pop beauty.

Speaking to Noisey, Wilde says: "'You’re So Kool-Aid' documents having full-blown wobbles attempting to reinvent my so called ‘sound’… takes a few listens to work out why it exists in the first place, demanding you spend more time with it than you want to. It’s just another ugly and obnoxious troubled pop tune from the decompression chamber of general malaise, with lit synth hooks."

The new LP will follow acclaimed 2013 debut A Brief Introduction To Unnatural Lightyears and 2014 album Red Tide Opal In The Loose End Womb. Earlier this year Wilde released Long Hold Star An Infinite Abduction, a stop-gap maxi-EP, and told us all about it.

“My first two albums were fairly simple,” says Wilde. “There was no attempt at arrangement, for example. These new songs are the first I’ve developed fully, using all that I’ve learnt in the last few years. It’s easily the most accessible music I’ve ever made.”

Wilde has also confirmed two live dates for next spring - one in London and one in Bristol.
