Oliver Sim, best known as the bassist and vocalist of the xx, has shared his debut solo single. ‘Romance With a Memory’ was produced by Jamie xx and arrives with a video starring Charity Kase, HoSo Terra Toma, and Gena Marvin. Watch and listen below.
“I’m thrilled, excited, ecstatic, overcaffeinated and overjoyed to be sharing ‘Romance with a Memory’ with you all,” Sim said in a statement. “Terrifyingly, this is the first song I’ve ever released under my own name, I really hope you all enjoy it. Produced by my dear older brother Jamie xx. I’ve also made a compilation of some of my favourite monsters, killers and queers getting down. I hope both the music and monsters make you feel as happy as they make me—I cannot tell you how much joy it brings me to watch a ghoul having a good time. P.S. still very much in a loving and happy relationship/band with Romy and Jamie.”
