OLYMPIA bursts into 2019 with a stunning new single, an impending world tour with Julia Jacklin, and some big international signing news.
As premiered by Clash Magazine, Shoot To Forget, is fresh, light and loose, the sound of a relentlessly original artist coming into her own. This second single from the highly anticipated sophomore record balances Bartley’s force, melody and masterful use of imagery, while also showcasing the rock leanings introduced in lead single Star City.
The track draws on a range of ideas to explore the notion of cultural amnesia, of moving forward by forgetting led initially through the eyes of a photographer who ‘shoots to forget’. Shoot to Forget was co-produced with longtime collaborator Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, DZ Deathrays, DMAs).
2019 is lining up to be a huge year for the artist, following on from the highly acclaimed album Self Talk, and arresting live show across Australia and the UK, Olympia is announcing signing with UK label Opposite Number Records (Lowtide, H.Grimace), Coda Agency, UK (Billie Eilish, Maggie Rogers) and Paradigm Agency, US/CA (Coldplay, Flume).
