New Zealand songwriter Hollie Fullbrook first earned fans worldwide with her 2011 solo debut full-length, Some Were Meant For Sea, and she’s since become an international force of psychedelic folk pop under the name Tiny Ruins. It wasn’t long before Tiny Ruins expanded from just the founding frontwoman to a well-disciplined four-piece live band, who’ve now toured the English-speaking world several times over, opening for the likes of Sharon Van Etten and Calexico.
The latest triumph of Tiny Ruins is their third full-length, Olympic Girls, and it’s available everywhere today! Recorded with a relatively relaxed schedule, the eleven originals on Olympic Girls find Tiny Ruins flirting with new experimental ideas and a phenomenally rounded out full-band sound. Before you listen to Olympic Girls in its entirety, soak up this haunting slow burner of a single from Tiny Ruins, “School of Design”!
