“Stunning new single” HOT PRESS MAGAZINE (IRELAND)
“Olympia continues to astound us.. She absolutely bowled us over with her last album Self Talk in 2016 and ‘Shoot To Forget’ might well have taken things up another step again. It‘s a charged-up jolt of energetic indie-pop that digs its claws in from the very outset.” DOUBLE J
“2019 is looking like it will be a big year for Australia’s hottest new star" SECRET MEETING (UK)
Olympia is ready to celebrate the release of her forthcoming sophomore record “Flamingo” by taking her magnetic live show on the road around the world.
Incorporating shows in the UK, Europe and Australia, the tour will involve highly coveted spots on the UK’s Latitude Festival and Reeperbahn Festival in Germany, and shows in London, Dublin, Amsterdam, Paris, Sydney, Melbourne to name but a few. The tour will see Olympia showcasing songs from “Flamingo” for the very first time, along with crowd favourites from her earlier repertoire.
‘Flamingo’ is a glorious collection of 11 tracks, resonating with complex pop unspooling, vast lyrical scope and the confident animation of a world lit with familiar dreams and desires. A striking follow up to the debut ‘Self Talk’, an album that was nominated for an ARIA award, J Award for Best Video, shortlisted in the Australian Music Prize and selected as triple j feature album.
Olivia Bartley, creative force behind the project, co-produced the upcoming album with long- time collaborator Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, DMAs).
“The record explores how grief and desire are intertwined. It’s referencing a personal tragedy – the addiction and loss of someone very close to me,” says Bartley. “But it’s not a project of catharsis – I chose to submit myself to this experience because I wanted to create from inside it, rather than explaining it. I’ve tried to borrow from my own grief to create its inverse: something joyous. Something beyond myself, something fantastic -something new”.
“It’s the most personal I’ve ever been, but also the most confident. This album is a force.”
