Tiny Ruins, originally conceived as the solo project of New Zealand singer-songwriter Hollie Fullbrook, are releasing their third album Olympic Girls on February 1st. Today, Tiny Ruins share a new song and video for ‘Holograms’, Watch below!
“The song is a conversation in a way, where one person posits the idea that technology will increasingly connect us. That we will not just be emotionally or mentally connected, but that our bodies will transcend physical and mortal bounds via technology. That we can bring someone back…
The idea of the video, I guess, is that I have a vision of this place I am trying to reach…I gather up particular objects that I feel will connect me to this place. But in the end, it’s futile – I try to reach the planet that appears through the wall, with all my technology revved up, and….it collapses in front of me.”
Olympic Girls is the culmination of a flourish of spontaneity and experimentation and stridently reaches beyond Fullbrook’s formerly minimalist domain. Pre-order the forthcoming album here.
Olympic Girls was produced by bandmate Tom Healy in the same underground space (Paquin Studios at The Lab in hometown Auckland) as their 2014 album, Brightly Painted One. Catch them tour Australia nationally this May. Further details below.
