Back in January we were introduced to Olivia’s World via the tune “Cereal Boxes;” it was the first I had heard of the project, though their drummer seemed a familiar name. Finally we get news that Olivia’s World EP is on its way! There’s another tune for you to devour too, which is the EP’s opening number; it’s a tune heavily reliant upon the rhythm section, with both bass and drums getting you tapping those little toes. The guitars have this light distorted jangle keeping the energy going, which seems fair as lead songwriter Alice Rezende happens to call Australia home. The Olivia’s World EP will be out October 25th via Lost Sound Tapes. Happy Friday.
You’re working through your day, enjoying various tunes, and suddenly Rose Melberg’s name pops up under new releases. You scour the Internet, you rush to find the track…lo and behold, there’s Olivia’s World, a new band featuring Rose on drums, with friends Lica and Joe joining in. The trio craft that insatiable sort of pop, high on fuzzy, hook-laden guitars, and heavy on the sugary vocals that make any listener swoon. The video is playful, attached to the feeling of the song, with Lica seemingly having the most fun with her shark impression. Lost Sound Tapes promise to have a cassette EP out this Spring…but it’ll sell out quick if the songs are all as good as this.
