Oliver Sim has released a new single, ‘Run The Credits’.
The track is the latest from his upcoming debut album ‘Hideous Bastard’, out tomorrow (Friday 9th September) via Young.
“I very much see this album as a queer horror film, and I wrote ‘Run the Credits’ as the closing scenes of the film,” he says. “Sonically, I think it’s quite a joyous and celebratory song, but lyrically it’s quite open ended and has a lot of anger. It was also an opportunity to pay homage to some of the characters I love the most in cinema like Patrick Bateman and Buffalo Bill. I’ve loved those characters since I was a little boy. I never identified with the Disney princes or the action heroes—the villains and the final girls are the ones who excited me and who I aspired to be.”

The song drop also arrives just after Oliver took to social media to share the news that his tour dates across September and October are unfortunately cancelled. In the statement, he states that “sometimes things don’t quite come together the way we’d hoped” and thanks fans for their patience.
