With her stunning voice, ripping guitar playing and rock-sure attitude it’s no wonder the music press has gone completely nuts over Olympia’s album Flamingo. It’s even been nominated for the Australian Music Prize! Her recent live shows in Europe have had fans raving (and non-believers turned into groupies) and now it’s your turn to see what all the fuss is about.
‘Dazzling’ ‘A wonderfully envisioned album.’ ‘Alt-pop perfection.’ ‘One of the most inventive and exciting indie rock releases of the year.’ ‘Relentlessly original.’
Don’t miss Olympia, one of Australia’s most relentlessly original artists performing her highly anticipated new album ‘Flamingo’ live.
With her sophomore album FLAMINGO released on July 5, Olympia has a string of high profile tour dates across the globe.
Following critically acclaimed shows across the UK and Europe earlier this year, Olympia returns for the biggest headline tour of her career including the UK, Ireland, Europe and Australia, to deliver the bold, immersive vision that is ‘Flamingo’, with a full band in tow.
‘Flamingo’ is Olympia’s most personal record to date, full of risk, escalation, and the complex pop unspooling we’ve come to recognise in her work. Packed with insistent earworms the album struts boldy between the artists knack at crafting sophisticated pop tunes able to spring multiple moods, and the sizzle of sonics being pushed ever so into the red.
Her music has been compared to artists as disparate as Joey Santiago (Pixies), Anna Calvi and David Bowie.
Olivia Bartley, creative force behind the project, co-produced the upcoming album with long-time collaborator Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, DMAs).
Olympia will be supported in Anglesea by Jess Ribeiro.
