Oliver Tank burst seemingly out of nowhere with his own brand of incredibly textural glitch pop with his debut EP ‘Dreams’ in late 2011. He followed that up with the stunning sophomore EP ‘Slow Motion Music’ in late 2013 which included collaborations with Ta-Ku, Hayden Calnin, as well as long-time friend and music collaborator Fawn Myers.
The last five years have been huge, and at times, daunting. Outside of winning rave reviews across the globe for both his EP’s. Oliver’s whirlwind rise in profile was kicked off by winning FBi Radio’s Northern Lights competition which saw him flown over to Iceland to perform at Iceland’s Airwaves Festival, he was also included in Triple J’s “2012 Next Crop” on top of being nominated for an FBi SMAC Award in the “Next Big Thing” category in the same year.
2012 was kicked off with a bang, with supports with Active Child, Youth Lagoon, Bonobo, Megan Washington at the Sydney Opera House and Julia Stone, plus his multiple sell out headline shows, which were followed by performances at The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City as well as headline shows in the UK, before coming home to support Lana Del Rey nationally. 2013/14 saw the dream run of supports continue, completing national tours with James Blake & Lorde before his own national run and appearances at Falls Festival.
All the while Tank has been slowly and quietly working on his debut LP. Combining real instruments with computers, Tank creates heartfelt, vivid soundscapes that have to be heard, to be believed. His forthcoming LP will show off his delicate song writing and beautiful soundscapes.
