Tiny RuinsSince 2010 New Zealand’s Hollie Fullbrook has performed as Tiny Ruins, the indie-folk project that effortlessly combines evocative storytelling with rich instrumentation.

A warm guitar opens the album as Fullbrook’s vocals invite you to settle in. The instrumentation across the album creates a wonderful atmosphere – School of Design beguiles with its strings and series of chimes, while Holograms possesses a quality that makes it both dreamy and light. Kore Waits In The Underworld is arguably the album’s highlight, with its stunning crescendo leaving the listener entirely transfixed.

Olympic Girls is overall a dazzling achievement and serves as testament to Fullbrook’s remarkable talent that will no doubt resonate with many.

Olympic Girls is out Feb 1 via Milk!/Remote Control.
