We are all products of our environment. It
just so happens that some are luckier than
others when it comes to where they are from. Building
off the rich history of the Washington, DC scene,
OLYMPIA is able to draw from the diverse anthology
of the bands that came before them. Where other
bands end up being carbon copies of a fleeting trend,
OLYMPIA has forged a sound all their own. If the
Washington, DC music scene is a barrel full of gasoline,
then OLYMPIA is the box of matches.

This is the most refreshing record i've heard in a while. Great songwriting mixed with a ton of great musical energy = Olympia. This record is great from front to back. Buy it NOW!!!

Equal Vision has been on a winning streak lately i'd say. With recent releases from Hot Cross, Damiera & Deer in The headlights along comes Olympia. Definitely more rock based than anything EV has put out recently, but still very good. Often times reminds me of a mix of the Foo Fighters & Gatsbys American Dream (I know, weird mix). Good cd, check it out.
