Tiny Ruins announce the upcoming release of their new album Olympic Girls, out Friday 1st February 2019. To celebrate, they have released their new single and title track ‘Olympic Girls’ with its official music video. Watch below!
Directed by Charlotte Evans, the video follows the first acoustic guitar flourish of ‘Olympic Girls’ ushering the potent words of Tiny Ruins’ Hollie Fullbrook. The track is buoyant with a rolling energy. Cascading electric guitars counterpoint with a razor-sharp post-punk edge as the drums and bass stampede along, Fullbrook urging an exhilarating shake-up of the status quo – as the chorus dictates, “We were only inches away / still have a long, long way to go.”
Album three, Olympic Girls, was produced by bandmate Tom Healy. Patiently built in the same underground lair (Paquin Studios at The Lab in hometown Auckland) as their previous record Brightly Painted One. The new album was made over a drawn-out period of spontaneity and experimentation spanning a year, stridently reaching beyond Fullbrook’s formerly minimalist domain.
The album announcement follows the bands recent return from a series of sold out Tiny Ruins shows across the UK and Europe; Fullbrook then playing solo across Australia with Milk! Records mastermind and artist Jen Cloher, and touring as support for iconic Kiwi band, The Chills, through New Zealand.
Tiny Ruins perform two headline shows next month, at Sydney’s Leadbelly on Wednesday 14th November and at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club on Thursday 15th November. Ticket links below.
