… completely original, self aware, and well thought out.” – The 405

For fans of… Spring Offensive, Tubelord, Tall Ships, Adults, The Elderly and Children
Olypmians are today pleased to announce the release of their EP Adventure Gun which can be streamed on The 405 website.

The math-pop band, who consist of Daniel Harvey (vocals/guitar/synth); Benjamin Thompson(vocals/guitar/synth/trumpet); Christopher Neil (vocals/bass) and Michael Parkin (vocals/drums/glock), formed due to their love of technically proficient bands such as Youthmovies and Don Caballero. The four-piece from Norwich have since honed their sound, building a psychedelic twist into their penchant for technical exuberance, producing an exquisite six track EP.

Single release, Filling My Heart With Weird Dreams, sums up the bands intentions – highlighting a rich, yet patchwork sound similar in style to Kotki Dwa’s second release ‘Staycations’. The track is focused by rich lead vocals, succulent harmonies, sugar-induced synth pulses, and forms a remarkable statement of intent from a band bursting with an impressive creative vision.

You can download Filling My Heart With Weird dreams from the ABoF Soundcloud page and below.

The record emphasises the work of an experimental band who also have the unerring ability to write uplifting pop music. There is a sprinkling of electronic samples, incessant drum beats that twist and turn, warming harmonies and a musicianship that is subtle yet lofty. All of this is captured in the opening track ‘Mountains’ which builds slowly, and rather innocuously, into a track laden with heavy synth, ethereal vocals, compact harmonies and snappy, agile drum beats.
