Watch: Oliver Sim ‘GMT’

Oliver Sim unveils new single ‘GMT’, from his debut album Hideous Bastard, set for release on 9th September. Watch the accompanying video by longtime friend and collaborator Laura Jane Coulson below!

‘GMT’ was one of the first songs made for the record,” says Sim. “I’d chased Jamie to Australia to escape British winter. We worked in Sydney and road tripped down to Byron Bay, stopping at secluded beaches and listening to a lot of The Beach Boys and Brian Wilson on the way. The first song we made was ‘GMT,’ sampling Brian Wilson’s ‘Smile.’ The song was written about pining over a love back home, thousands of miles apart on different time zones. It’s also a love letter to London.”

Sim has so far shared several tracks exploring fear, shame, sexuality and masculinity. Several of the songs will soundtrack the forthcoming short film ‘Hideous,’ starring Sim and directed by Yann Gonzales, which made its world premiere as part of the Semaine de la Critique at the Cannes Film Festival.
