Olympia, Australia’s ‘local guitar bully and counter-culture connoisseur’, Herald Sun
One of Australia’s most relentlessly original artists, Olympia has released two studio albums to international critical acclaim including Flamingo (2019) and Self Talk (2016), an album that was
nominated for an ARIA award, shortlisted in the Australian Music Prize and selected as Triple J feature album.
‘Flamingo’ is pure force. The album soared as guitar-fronted art-rock, studded with the artists' signature melodies leading Clash (UK) to describe the artist “in perfect control of her art”.
‘Flamingo’ scored huge international success including high radio circulation on Radio X (UK), BBC1 (UK), Flux
FM (GR), Double J (AUS), and headline tours across Europe and the UK.
Recent tours have included Anna Calvi, Julia Jacklin, Garbage and Fred Armisen drawing critical
comparisons to Joey Santiago (Pixies) and David Bowie.
Olivia Bartley, creative force behind Olympia, also joins the onstage outfit as part of Something for Kate, Blake Scott (The Peep Tempel) and Paul Dempsey.
