OLYMPIA – Announces International Tour – ‘Flamingo’ out 5 July – Watch New Video

June 20, 2019

OLYMPIA ANNOUNCES INTERNATIONAL TOUR DATES THIS JULY TO OCTOBER INCLUDING LATITUDE FESTIVAL, REEPERBAHN AND HER LARGEST HEADLINE SHOWS TO DATE

NEW ALBUM ‘FLAMINGO’ SET FOR RELEASE ON 5 JULY 2019

With her sophomore album FLAMINGO set for release on July 5, OLYMPIA today unveils a string of high profile tour dates across the globe. 

Following revered 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.  Listen to singles  ‘Shoot to Forget’ and ‘Hounds’.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). 
Don’t miss Olympia, one of Australia’s most relentlessly original artists performing her highly anticipated new album ‘Flamingo’ live. Tickets go on sale at 10am Wednesday June 26. For exclusive access to pre-sale tickets 48 hours before they go on sale, find the Facebook event for the show you’re going to, and hit INTERESTED!
