Tiny Ruins has dropped a new video from Olympic Girls, along with details of two live shows to showcase her new album.
Hollie Fullbrook’s third long player is out on February 1 and will be backed with two live shows featuring the band, which consists of Alex Freer (drums), Cass Basil (bass) and Tom Healy (guitar, keys); the latter also produced the album.
Tiny Ruins will play the main theatre at Te Auaha in Wellington on March 10 and the Pt Chev RSA in Auckland on March 16 before heading to Europe for an extensive tour.
The latest song to be shared from Olympic Girls is ‘Holograms’, the video for which was directed by Martin Sagadin.
Fullbrook says the video was inspired partly by Kate Bush’s ‘Cloudbursting’ and TV shows such as Maniac, where the technology is not quite ‘of this time’.
“The song is a conversation in a way, where one person posits the idea that technology will increasingly connect us,” she continues. “That we will not just be emotionally or mentally connected, but that our bodies will transcend physical and mortal bounds via technology.
“The idea of the video, I guess, is that I have a vision of this place I am trying to reach…I gather up particular objects that I feel will connect me to this place. But in the end, it’s futile – I try to reach the planet that appears through the wall, with all my technology revved up, and….it collapses in front of me.”
