Oscar and the Wolf released his Oscar and the Wolf EP via Neon Gold Records.
Max Colombie details: “In the run-up to Summer 2018 I felt I could provide a new facet to my latest single ‘Fever’. It already harboured hints of 90’s Eurotrance and Ibiza combined, but I knew I could still take it one step further. I wanted it to sound more like a Calvin Harris remix, purposed for an after-hours club, rather than a peak time festival set. The result is a restrained, yet effective edit gleaming of summer.”
“Fever” is the latest track to be taken from his new album Infinity which has already reached in excess of 30 million streams.
Oscar and the Wolf, the working moniker of Belgian artist Max Colombie, created and wrote much of his second album Infinity at home in Brussels following the release of his debut, 2015’s Entity. The success and consequent workload - the album attained triple platinum status at home in Belgium, gold in Holland and saw Oscar & The Wolf ever-present at festivals across Europe - resulted in a period of intense-self exploration and much of Infinity is Colombie’s reflective overview on this part of his life.
Oscar and the Wolf is currently on the road hitting festivals across Europe, and will be back for headline shows this fall.
