Oliver Wilde is back with a grand new track called "Bifida"

07 April 2016, 08:45 | Written by Laurence Day

Oliver Wilde has today shared a brand new track called "Bifida".

The Bristol-based multi-instrumentalist/producer announced the new song this morning via Twitter:

"Bifida" is a lo-fi psych with grand ambitions - it's got emotive string sections, theremin-sounding melodies, Wilde's signature vocal distortion, and a shuddering, semi-post-rock climax. The lyrics are characteristically cryptic; the title "Bifida", translated from Latin, means 'split', is most commonly linked with Spina Bifida.

Wilde's keeping schtum on if this is a one-off release or if it's heralding a new record, but if anything longer does emerge, it'll follow 2014's Red Tide Opal In The Loose End Womb and 2013 debut A Brief Introduction To Unnatural Lightyears.

Listen to "Bifida" below.
