Pleased to welcome Melbourne’s Ex-Olympian to the Dot Dash Recordings roster, joining artists including Methyl Ethel, Sui Zhen, Donny Benét, Banoffee & more.
Ex-Olympian is the new musical vessel for Liam McGorry – songwriter & musician for bands such as Saskwatch and Dorsal Fins. Named after the neon sign that adorns ‘Borsari’s Corner’ in Melbourne’s Lygon St, Ex-Olympian reflects the times we all need to shift things forward into a new phase. Musically, things are shifting gears too.
As revealed by The Industry Observer, Ex-Olympian shares “I’ve had a lot to do with [Dot Dash] over the years with both Saskwatch and Dorsal Fins, and they are honestly one of the most lovely, fervent champions of Australian Music out there. It’s an honour to add a little Dream Funk to the Dream Team.”
Dot Dash Recordings and Remote Control Records co-director Harvey Saward adds “We have always loved working with Liam. He’s a phenomenal writer and musician… we’re so chuffed to be able to add Ex-Olympian to our Dot Dash roster and share his vocal debut with the world.”
To celebrate the news, Ex-Olympian today shares his debut single & video ‘Voices in My Head’ – the A-side of a new 7” record out Friday 31 July, in a partnership between two Melbourne icons: Northside Records & Dot Dash / Remote Control Records. It’s also McGorry’s vocal debut.
Like all good things… it’s taken time. We hope you’ll enjoy, Ex-Olympian.
