Olimpia Splendid is about endless loops, hypnotic bass and sort-of-tune guitar noise, whispering, unruliness, skrikes. The trio was founded in the summer of 2010 in Helsinki and is formed by visual artists & musicians Heta Bilaletdin, Jonna Karanka and Katri Sipiläinen. They have also played in Toblerones, Melmac, Bir iki, Hertta Lussu Ässä, Hockey Night, MYTTYS and Kuupuu. Fonal Records released their 7” ep in 2013 which was followed by a full-length debut in July 2015. Olimpia Splendid is rumoured to be “best stoner shit” and also “a little bit famous”.
“Ari set the golden microphones up and left us in the studio. We recorded three songs. It took a few hours. We walked back home in the storm. Heart, beat with me.”
