Creating a dream soundscape of etherial elements yet retaining a driving sense of energy and purpose, Celestial North sculpts an intoxicating sense of wonder on her new single ‘Olympic Skies’, the latest single to be taken from her new album ‘Otherworld’.
Built around a sea of piano, airy synths, gently strummed acoustics and grounding bass, the tracks distant yet driving drums pull the track forward under the silky, glowing lead vocal.

Talking about the track, Celestial North describes the single as “a breakup song between the land and modern man”.
