Pete Yorn & J.D. King are THE OLMS

After a seven-year friendship, Pete Yorn and J.D. King stepped into King’s Southern California home studio for a meeting of the musical minds. The result: a brand new band and a familiar but unique style all their own. The Olms self-titled debut release features a free-wheeling sound, which melds folk, rock, country-rock, and Laurel Canyon pop, thanks to jangly acoustic guitar, wistful melodies, radiant harmonies, and unexpected instrumental flourishes. Songs like the strummy “Wanna Feel It” and “Someone’s Else’s Girl” glow with a lush ’60s vibe, while the honky-tonk-ish “On The Line” shows the duo’s harder-rocking side with hints of psychedelic organ. “The album has an old-sounding feel, but I feel like it still sounds really fresh,” Yorn says. “It sounds uniquely like us and a hybrid of our influences, from my love of Brit-pop and groups like The Beach Boys and The Kinks, to J.D.’s love for British Invasion bands like The Animals, as well as bluegrass and country music.”
