Sun-soaked 80s inspired cinematic synth pop from California.
FM-84 LIVE is Col Bennett, Ollie Wride and Chris Huggett.
Col is a producer from Scotland, now living in San Francisco, California. Ollie Wride is a singer-songwriter from Brighton, England and Chris Hugget is a songwriter and guitarist from Toronto, Canada.
Together they come together to turn Col’s vision for FM-84 into an epic and intimate live experience.
Prepare for soaring retro beats, nostalgic synths, sun-kissed guitars and an epic vocal performance from irrepressible live frontman Ollie Wride. After two SOLD OUT performances in San Francisco and Los Angeles in 2017, the trio take their live show east to New York, Toronto, Chicago and Dallas for an exclusive 4 date US tour.
The tour follows the huge independent success of “Atlas”, the debut album from FM-84. Vehlinggo described the album as “Stunning. Stratospheric and Enchanting.” NewRetroWave said “Atlas is a profound masterpiece of an album done with an almost unfathomable attention to detail.” and Magnetic Magazine called it “Incredible. An album that rattles you so intensely to the core that you can’t believe what you’re hearing.”
Atlas is the story of wonder, imagination, dreams, youth, innocence, love and heartbreak all captured under the golden light of a fading summer sun. The sound of a summer long gone.
Experience the retro synth-pop sensation LIVE this October.
