NZ Live: Tiny Ruins

From NZ Live, 2:27 pm on 22 February 2019

Kiwi band Tiny Ruins waited a long time to release their new album Olympic Girls so the band's excitement level was high, says singer Hollie Fullbrook.

Olympic Girls is less folky and more indie pop than the band's previous releases and each member expresses their musical personality a bit more, she tells Jesse Mulligan.

Throsby's beloved bandmates are Tom Healy (who also produced Olympic Girls), Cass Basil and Alex Freer.

"I'm taking them wherever I can. They're an amazing band. I'm very lucky to have these three."

'Olympic Girls' comes from a line in the album's title track and seemed to fit because there are a few female characters throughout, Throsby says.

Tiny Ruins played four tracks from Olympic Girls:

  • Holograms
  • One Million Flowers
  • Sparklers
  • Bounty
