Olympians – ‘Dance Like Everybody’s Watching And They Hate You’ EP review


Ahead of a full-length album later this year, Olympians have released an extended EP/mini-album via Barely Regal with the fitting title ‘Dance Like Everybody’s Watching and They Hate You’.

Introducing: Record/Start


Recalling the likes of Guided by Voices, Weezer and Pavement, Brighton via Manchester resident Record/Start has the art of slackerpop down to a tee.
