ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Olympics is a uniquely charming and powerful ensemble whose pretty melodies and fun beats don’t prevent them from rocking their songs really hard." - Ames Tribune

"On Barefoot Blondes it is incredible to listen to each individual musician in turn, to hear how they work the angles of each song with precision and masterful care. The bottom line is that The Olympics are a group of friends who play music together. They love each other, they love their music, and it shines through with every note and every lyric." -WarBing Magazine

"...The Olympics, one of the best young bands in Iowa who've been gaining fans like mad (especially among other bands) with their impressive high-tempo, anthemic and powerfully rocking shows." -Talking with Yale Cohn

"Sometimes a band has a ton of different influences and aren’t quite sure how to showcase all of them, and they just sound a mess. Sometimes bands can come across too much as emulating one particular genre or time period and you spend your whole time going, “oh, this sounds like *blank*.” And then a band like The Olympics comes along and plays whatever they want, however they want, and you just lean back and applaud them." -Des Moines Is Not Boring

"The Olympics is one of the most prominent bands in Iowa today." - Little Village Live Concert Series

"This is an Iowa band you need to know... they’ve matured into an excellent indie rock band capable of weaving tones together into a bright, rocking and melodic dose of pure pop." - Ames Tribune

"The Olympics came on next and quickly won the hearts of everyone in the room. Easy progressions set sail on Dan Roalson’s fast and funky bass grooves while Trevor Polk’s creative keyboard voicing made my lips keep curling up into involuntary smiles. The Olympics make fun, well-crafted songs, they are never boring." -Little Village Magazine



The Olympics have played with:
Manchester Orchestra, Free Energy, Margot & the Nuclear So and So's, Miniature Tigers, Dear and the Headlights, White Rabbits, Rubblebucket, Oberhofer, Generationals, Jaill, etc.
