Olympians are a music band. They started in Norwich but are now mostly based in London. They have released 2 EPs and ran a book-themed singles club throughout 2012. They record pop songs with as many instruments as they can find. They play their songs live with guitars and shout a lot, it is more fun that way. Theirs is the only band that all of the members agree they vaguely like.
