OLIVER TANK ALBUM TOUR

Following the triumphant release of his debut album OT which features standout singles Charlene and Swerve, Sydney-based producer Oliver Tank embarked on his first national headline tour since 2014.  Known for mastering the art of heartfelt, vivid soundscapes with an electronic bent, Oliver Tank announced tour supports for his May 2017 shows.

Joined on tour by rising star BATTS, the project of Melbourne based singer-songwriter and space enthusiast Tanya Batt has gained radio support from BBC Radio 1 and KCRW.  Oisima will appeared in his hometown of Adelaide, armed with delicate dancing melodies and exotic imaginings whilst Sydney artist/producer Tashka will brought her sophisticated slice of pop to a selection of shows. Oliver was also joined in Sydney by producer, singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Giverny.

Recorded at Sing Sing studios in Melbourne, OT was co-produced with Jono Steer (Hiatus Kaiyote, Ali Barter) and marks a timeless talent whose creations continue to be both parts relevant and revolutionary.

Now with seven million cumulative streams under his belt, Tank first burst onto the scene in 2011 with his textual glitch pop debut EP Dreams, which he followed up with stunning sophomore EP, Slow Motion Music in late 2013, featuring collaborations with Ta-Ku, Hayden Calnin, as well as long-time friend and collaborator Fawn Myers.

With rave reviews worldwide for both EP’s, Tank’s rise was kicked off by winning FBi’s Northern Lights competition, inclusion in triple j’s “Next Crop” and nomination for FBi SMAC Award in the “Next Big Thing” category.

O L I V E R T A N K

Combining real instruments with computerized technology, Oliver Tank is a curator of heartfelt, vivid soundscapes that are delicate and have a way of melting into your soul. Only just yesterday, Tank played to a devoted crowd at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel. Supported by the likes of Oscar Key Sung and Bree Tranter, the night was filled with electronica infused sounds and edgy peaks and troughs.

Tank’s crisp vocal musings are enthralling. His minimal take on dreamscapes is beautifully defined by his latest Slow Motion Music EP. Different Speed is the collaboration of both Oliver Tank and Ta-Ku, and is one of the more popular tracks of the Slow Motion EP. This track is currently running loops on my playlist, as I cannot get enough of it. It’s simple and eerie yet the lyrics are ever so inviting and beautiful. Have a listen for yourself and tell me that those heartfelt beats don’t keep you hooked.
