"An album confident in its vulnerability and luxuriating in a bigger sound." - Loud & Quiet - 8/10
"Olympic Girls is warm, bold and anthemic. It’s sonically rooted in whimsy, but it supports some heavy ideas, an enchanting contrast of content and sound.” - Paste
"‘Olympic Girls’ is Tiny Ruins diversifying their sound and, in the process, unlocking something new and palpable. Simply by moving further out, they start to let us in.” - DIY
"On Tiny Ruins' newest album Olympic Girls, each note is flawless and precise – no moment is wasted.” - The Skinny
"Over the three albums Hollie Fullbrook has made as Tiny Ruins, the project has bloomed from a quiet, cloistered solo project to a full-fledged band capable of ornamental arrangement and grand dramatic gestures. Still, Olympic Girls keeps sight of the her hallucinatory approach to songwriting. Fullbrook has this way of making surreal flourishes out of mundane details and everyday emotions—mining darkness and drama from casual turns of phrase.” - Noisey
