US-based ambient/electronic artist Olimpyk takes their name from the EOB song Olympik. The reference to the Radiohead member becomes clear when you hear their music and hear the Thom Yorke inspiration, along with the fact that Olimpyk's previous musical career involves the contributions to Nosuch Library, a Radiohead tribute project ran by members of the r/Radiohead subreddit and its associated Discord server. Olimpyk released their first EP, Axes Drop, on January 11th, 2021, making them one of the first new artists to take the stage in 2021. Olimpyk also takes inspiration from Brooklyn rock band LCD Soundsystem and Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp.
