‘Olympic Girls Solo’
is out today on Marathon Artists
“Hollie Fullbrook’s lovely understated voice and wonky lyrical wisdom remain key on the third LP.” - MOJO 8/10
“Her most powerful album to date… a deeper listen to these eleven tracks exposes a breadth of influences that spans decades.”- The Wire
"Part of the charm of Olympic Girls lies in the layers of mystery in each song. Inspired by literature, science, nature and human experience, these mysteries lie waiting to be carefully unfolded…” - God Is In the TV - 9/10
“She is always looking uneasily toward the next line, or moving toward mysticism. In sentimental contexts, she generates lines of wicked ambition.” - The New York Times
Today, Tiny Ruins releases ‘Olympic Girls Solo’, an acoustic recording of the widely acclaimed third album. Featuring Hollie Fullbrook’s arresting vocals and intricate guitar playing, the solo recordings are a return to the sparse beauty of her earliest work. The album features some of Fullbrook’s most accomplished songwriting, recorded onto tape in whole live takes at Auckland’s renowned Roundhead Studios.
Hollie’s songs start their lives as simply crafted lyrics carried only by her captivating guitar melodies and voice. These solo recordings preserve the power and vulnerability of the original incarnations, stripped of the rich, soaring arrangements that her band contribute. The album in its full-band release is undoubtedly one of Tiny Ruins’ finest. Intended as a companion piece rather than an alternative version, this solo release offers a special treat for the legions of Tiny Ruins fans who appreciate song-craft in its barest form.
‘Olympic Girls Solo’ will be released today, Friday 27th September, through Marathon Artists. You can listen to the album HERE.
Hollie will be touring the UK and Europe to perform these solo works during October and November. Tour dates listed below, tickets available HERE.
