What can I tell you? I've heard Olympic Girls, and I had to pick my jaw up off the floor afterwards. A dense tangle of acoustic and electric guitars came tumbling out of my speakers and made me feel quite peculiar. Exhilarated, disoriented, a wee bit out-of-it. I felt as though someone had spiked my morning muesli with LSD....[Fullbrook's] songs often seem gentle and unassuming on first encounter – an impression deepened by her calm, warm, weary voice – but clustered around more introspective passages typical of confessional singer-songwriters are gnarlier phrases that give her work its buzzy voltage: arresting visual images, weird associations, daisy-chains of telling detail. - Grant Smithies

Olympic Girls was produced by bandmate Tom Healy in the same space (Paquin Studios at The Lab, Auckland) as their 2014 album, 'Brightly Painted One'. Whereas 'Brightly Painted One' was recorded in three short weeks, Olympic Girls recordings took place over a year. It is the culmination of a flourish of spontaneity and experimentation and stridently reaches beyond Fullbrook's formerly minimalist domain.
