Interview: Olympic Ayres On The Importance Of Movement
Sydney duo Olympic Ayres have carved out their own niche in the music scene and are becoming comfortable with referring to their music, as featured on their latest EP Leisureplex, as “electronic, indie, dance”. That last part, dance, is perhaps the most important part, explain the boys.
“It’s good to see crowd reaction and it’s good to see how people are dancing to the songs because we’re pretty conscious of how people are moving…just seeing what works is imperative,” they explain.
In the midst of a national tour right now, the duo tell us they are keen to get some writing done soon, as a way to get back to their roots. “We just want to get back to writing, now we’re starting to build a good team behind us that can help us just focus on songwriting,” they explain.
“That’s what we did in the first place to get this thing started and it’s worked for us in the past so that’s all we can do is keep writing…and put new challenges on ourselves.”
