Tiny Ruins

Agent: Eleanor McGuinness | Territory: EU/UK


Building on the sparse minimalism and mesmerising songwriting of earlier releases, Tiny Ruins’ third long-player ‘Olympic Girls’ comprises a taut and agile quiver of songs, dancing with explorative instrumentation and a pop sensibility that springs with life.

The album is a sophisticated ode to the possibilities of freedom, its title track replete with rich imagery of figure skaters, prison cells and stuccoed motels. Glittering with promise, it’s an urgent challenge to push further, to look harder – as the chorus of second single, the eponymous Olympic Girls dictates, “We were only inches away / still have a long, long way to go.”
