To us, the first dozen seconds of Melbourne songstress Olympia’s new single ‘Honey’ reminds us a little of what you might hear in the first tentative moments when you step foot inside one of those dingy second hand record stores.
You know, dark, bluesy and a world away from what’s blasting from the speakers of your nearest Boost Juice. But then Olympia (real name Olivia Bartley) opens her pipes, her stupendously sweet vocal spews forth and the mood lightens immeasurably.
And those gloriously sublime layered vocals in the chorus? Well let’s just say we know where the track gets its name.
The track, which has been serviced to media this week, is available for free download at her OFFICIAL WEBSITE, but only ’til February 13.
