Olympic Ayres are comprised of two young men who call themselves Kamaliza and Miiddii. It’s feel good music. It’s summertime music, music you can turn up loud and listen to in your car, at the beach, in the car on the way to the beach, etc. So you are listening at the right time of year, as we leave spring behind and embrace the sweltering heat and factor 50 (except of course during a summer thunderstorm. Damn you El Niño)!
It is fresh and makes you want to dance. They create a fusion of different sounds, spanning and blending different genres to create a vibrant, electronic pop. Magic has got a bit of a 70s disco feel to it, which I really like. There’s a nice little synthy jam in there too. Olympic Ayres were Triple J’s Unearthed winners for Field Day 2013. Their most recent work, Episode III, was released in August of this year so it is available for your sweet little ears right now.
