Olympian Tour Dates

From the ashes of previous, and largely unsuccessful, bands such as Paper Boats, rises the phoenix known as Olympian. The two members, Aron Robinson and Justin Sheran, have years of experience between them, and seem well qualified to finally make the break into the mainstream.

The name Olympian came about when the boys were struggling to find a name that was appropriate to the music and their new situation. In the same way that an Olympic athlete hones their craft for years for that moment of glory, Olympian have done the same for many years now and feel that this is their time to enjoy their day in the sun.

Those who have previously seen either of them taking their music around Manchester in the hope of finding recognition will already be familiar with Aron’s work as both a singer/songwriter. In Olympian, all these times of blood, sweat and tears have come together in what he himself calls ‘ a sound that is my own’, and the collaboration with Justin has certainly resulted in a sound that is unique; blending low key arrangements with the kind of downbeat compassion you can hear from Elbow and I am Kloot.

The songs lack John Bramwell’s anguished bitterness, and Guy Garvey’s grandeur, instead offering a softer and almost romantic feel to their tales regret, walking away and drunken fools. The ‘Three Songs’ that the duo made available to download last month have been extremely well received, and their following through the social networks is also increasing at a speed of knots.
