Following on from the coverage of Our Lost Infantry it's probably best if we introduce you to their sometime tour mates Olympians and their single 'Foreign Language'

Olympians - Foreign Language from Runaway on Vimeo.

Seeing as I've given you the video to watch and the link to download the song for free from Olympians bandcamp you'd think there's no point in me writing about it wouldn’t you? Well, you'd be wrong. And should probably know KPL well enough by now to know that I don't just shut up.

Hailing from Norwich, Olympians claim that the only equipment they have or ever will own is “one drum set, one bass, two guitars, two keyboards, a glockenspiel and a trumpet”, which makes you wonder what they do for amps. The above single is perhaps the best representation of their blend of fuzzed up wonder and 'math pop' intricacy' recalling Youthmovies and even moments of Young Knives circa Superabundance.

Hopefully it'll enamour you enough that you'll consider putting their Evil Pop EP To Our Wives And Sweethearts on yr list of things to buy. It features a song called 'You Don't Have To Be A Prick To Work Here, But You Are', which is enough to at least get these Olympians a gold in the song title event.
