British production duo Gorgon City have unveiled the details surrounding their third studio album, Olympia. Set for release this June, the duo have also shared a new taste of the record with the release of Tell Me It’s True. The euphoric, house-piano led track is built around an ever-evolving bassline, grooving below seamless vocal chops,
With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping the duo physically apart, Olympia is the result of remote collaboration, with the Kye "Foamo" Gibbon and Matt "RackNRuin" Robson-Scott working on the album from entirely separate continents.
Inspired by Greek mythology, Olympia is set to be 'an eclectic and euphoric mix of past and present'. The record will fuse together 90’s house with contemporary pop, delivering a collaborative body of work that features guest appearances from Rose Grey & Aura James, alongside past collaborators Josh Barry, Sofi Tukker and DRAMA
Speaking of the album, the duo share: “With this record we’ve definitely gone more clubby and have been inspired by the big shows that we played before lockdown. It’s a bigger sound and lyrically it's different for us”
Formed in 2012, Gorgon City have sold over 10 million singles and clocked up over 1.5 billion streams. While the duo are no strangers to chart success with hits such as “Ready For Your Love,” their sound is rooted deep in club culture and made for live shows. Many songs get road tested in clubs before being put onto an album. The live setting is where the duo truly thrives - 2019 saw amazing sets around the world including Coachella, EDC Vegas and Israel’s Get Lost Festival, as well as sold-out shows from iconic UK venues such as Printworks, Warehouse Project and Tobacco Dock.
Olympia is out June 25. Listen to Tell Me It’s True below.
