Have you ever wanted to be one of those people walking down the street shimmying their shoulders and raising their eyebrows suggestively at passers by? Put Unsigned Artist of the Week, Olympic Ayres, on your tune-machine and you can be.
The fellows making up the electro-pop duo, Kamaliza Salamba and Nathan Mifsud, have been pretty synth happy since Olympic Ayres started in 2011. You may have heard them help us turn ten in September last year. If you want to relive those festivities, a bit of the live recording is available as a free download on the 9th Rip.
Fun and lighthearted, the guys are moving what started as a bedroom project out into the world and making that world sound like a giant ball-pit filled with keyboards, electric guitars, killer harmonies and a disco ball here or there. Their latest single ‘Take Flight’ is the most playful yet. It is set to feature on their upcoming EP, Leisureplex, suggesting the release will hold a whole bunch of dance inducing numbers.
Listening to Olympic Ayres is definitely a group activity; one we would encourage you whip out the air guitars and keyboards for.
Have a free download of the brand new Accadamy remix of ‘Take Flight’ why don’t you.
