About me

 

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Olya opens a new chapter in her musical journey with her newly created electro synth-pop project. Smart and chic, simply named OLYA, she is cranking out a sound that is as intimate as her hometown peers in Lucius, and as bold and brash as current electro pop darlings Chvrches.

In 2010, the Russian-born singer co-produced and self-released her debut album Carefully. Shortly after releasing Carefully, she put together a band and started performing at famed NYC venues, including The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall and Bowery Electric, and had a chance to perform on stage of Carnegies Weill Recital Hall. In just a few years she gained a level of notability for, as TriStateIndie wrote, putting her own stamp on the genre of world/pop music. 2012 also saw her performing at several well-regarded music festivals, including CMJ, CBGB and Launch.

In the latter half of 2013, under the flagship of the new electro synth-pop sound, Olya released her first single "Crash and Burn". The singles intricate harmonies and rich vocals, layered on top of driving synths and deep bass, shine a light on what she has in store for music fans on her in-the-works, upcoming full-length.
