Track Of The Day: Olympian - Back To The Great Lakes

Olympian‘s debut EP ‘Back To The Great Lakes’ was released a few weeks ago on April 1st. Olympian is the latest musical project from Manchester-based singer-songwriter Aron Robinson. He describes the EP as being “a very personal record that deals with loss and not wanting to let go but learning that you have to”. 

Olympian have gained fans including I Am Kloot’s John Bramwell (who actually recommended them to me a few months ago) and Damon Gough (Badly Drawn Boy). The group now seem destined to co-habit the musical arena that Bramwell’s own band and Elbow have successfully made their mark on, albeit, in the case of Olympian, the listener is presented with a much more introspective kind of grandeur. Personally I think they have more in common with The National and the more grandiose moments of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds

Olympian’s Facebook page is HERE, and you can listen to three tracks from the EP at their Soundcloud page below. The brilliant 'Promenades' is available as a free download for a limited period of time.
