Sydney duo Olympic Ayres are a band on the rise. Having released two EPs already, they’re currently completing a third, this time with the aid of noted Australian producer Jean-Paul Fung (who was the mastermind behind Last Dinosaurs’ hugely popular album In A Million Years). They’ve been turning heads of late, with a number of support slots showcasing their energetic live show.
With new music not ready until early next year, I thought I’d give you a taste of a track off their first EP, “Daylight.” Their innovative mix of disco, electro and hip-hop (“basically we try to make dance music with instruments”) really gives their tracks a party-friendly feel, with the highlight of this song being the tropical percussion breakdown to finish.
