Bio

The Olympics are five young danes from outskirts of very different danish cities. Having met through mutual friends, they hooked up in Copenhagen in autumn 2008.

Musically, what sets The Olympics apart from most other acts are an extraordinary sense of melody. That makes every song explicitly enjoyable, no matter the course. Add to that an adventurousness out of the ordinary, and you get a cocktail of colourful, clever and yet grandiose pop music.

They see themselves inspired by the likes of Peter Gabriel, TV On The Radio and Talk Talk, but their own voice is only becoming clearer and clearer.

What sets The Olympics apart is also their commitment and willingness to put everything into the band, the friendship, but also the self-supporting machine that The Olympics has become. They work hard, and they understand the necessity of being professional, dealing with both negotiation of contracts and setting up free teasing concerts while on tour.

Accomplishments so far:

2009, march: Having only 6 months of experience as a band, The Olympics won Danish National Radios Career Cannon, beating 900 competitors.

2009, august: Self-released their EP Adventure Pop and got the attention of both radio stations and record labels.

2010, june: Signed with remarkable Copenhagen based record label Speed Of Sound (Sleep Party People, The William Blakes, The Informations) and received a great deal of backup from danish radio with their first single, Bollywood.

2011, april: Released their debut album, Mother, co-produced by Frederik Nordsø (Brandy, Fallulah, The Informations) to critical acclaim. Second single, Fires and Rivers, received tremendous amounts of airplay on Danish National Radio P3.

Live, they've been supporting The Drums, Kaizers Orchestra, played Spot Festival twice, and they are at the moment preparing their autumn tour around Denmark.
