Biography

Oliver Tank is a young Sydney-based producer and musician who is turning heads and melting hearts with his enchanting down-tempo electronica. Tank’s music has been compared to Bon Iver and James Blake and he lists Nosaj Thing, Boards of Canada, & Jon Hopkins as musical inspirations. Tank’s music was first shared with the public via SoundCloud throughout early-to-mid 2011. In September 2011, Tank won the 2011 Northern Lights Competition held by FBi Radio in Sydney, along with Rainbow Chan, to attend and perform at the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik in October 2011, marking Tank’s first International performance. Oliver Tank’s debut EP Dreams was released on 21 November 2011 by Yes Please Records with fans being able to choose their file format and name their price.

In an interview, Tank described how “Last Night I Heard Everything In Slow Motion” was a university assignment and that the song is about “being unsure about something to the extent that it plagues and consumes you.” Regarding, “The Last Time,” Oliver Tank has explained “this track’s about when you’re with someone you really care about and it all sort of falls apart. You replay those last moments over and over again in your head. It consumes you. Although at the same time it’s kind of liberating and inspiring.”
In 2011 an edited version of Tank’s “Last Night I Heard Everything In Slow Motion” was featured in a Marriage Equality Advertisement, It’s Time, put together by the organisation GetUp!.

    Gotta say, I kind of agree with hookbags, pretty flavourless edition of music I've heard from a bunch of artists that have mastered this style with a bit of life.

    Well I don't agree about Owl City. But, It sounds a bit like Port Blue, which is an alias of Adam Young aka Owl City. Port Blue is great, Owl City is crap.

    Banal and Boring LIKE MOST AUSTRALIAN BANDS. Australia produces so much garbage and then promotes the shit out of the worst of it. Stop bugging me with ads from bands with no discernible talent. All the good musos fuck off out of the country real quick like Dead Can Dance and Tal Wilkenfeld.
