Fuck Buttons - Olympians

by Rich Morris Rating:8 Release Date:2010-04-19

A new single released from last years excellent Tarot Sport LP, 'Olympians' is a 10 minute-plus piece of sonic electronic bliss. As with much of their output Fuck Buttons rely on repetition and the nice build up of a collage of sound, which gently changes pace while delicately adding additional noises to the song throughout. About five minutes is where the song really kicks off, with a rather triumphant and optimistic melody being introduced that dominates and lingers way beyond the song's end.

'Olympians' is a beautiful song, with a very apt title, being almost an up to date homage to Vangelis' 'Chariots of Fire', without being cheesy or drifting away from Fuck Buttons' unique sound.

Perfect summer listening while sat indoors waiting for the rain to pass.....
