Olympia is part of a growing new wave renaissance. Specialising in a slightly softer, more pop oriented version of the sound than her peers, she’s made a name for herself in her native Australia as one of the most intriguing new talents on the island. Having already captured the hearts of her home country fans, she played her first UK shows the The Great Escape last month and packed in another four across her time in the UK. Set to follow in the footsteps of her fellow countryfolk, Courtney Barnett and Tame Impala, she’s fast establishing herself as one to watch abroad as well as at home. We got her capture her time in the UK for an exclusive mood board.
