Oscar And The Wolf Entity Debut album from Belgium's Oscar and the Wolf. Electro-pop for fans of James Blake, Jon Hopkins and Mew! The heart of Oscar and the Wolf both musically and visually is one Max Colombie who, having composed much of the album in his bedroom in Brussels recorded in both London and back home in Belgium Any number of adjectives could attributed to ‘Entity’ but in essence the twelve tracks delve into Max’s heart and soul – idiosyncratic synth pop overseen by the much lauded multi-instrumentalist / producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, David Byrne, Jon Hopkins, Wild Beasts) who mixed the album in London. Minimal moodiness, sensual soundscapes and sometime sombre futuristic ambience coupled with the beguiling, often enthralling persona of Colombie, ‘Entity’ is the first step into the alluring world of Oscar and the Wolf, one that is set to open up over the coming months.
