Bio

Lica Rezende moved to Vancouver, Canada, for a two-year sabbatical in the Aussie summer of 2017. Often frequenting gigs alone, she started a drunk conversation one night that led to the recommendation that a lovely Rose Melberg may be available to drum in her then proto-band with boyfriend Joe. A die-hard fan of Melberg's various music ventures (Tiger Trap, Knife Pleats, The Softies), Lica was stunned at this turn of events and contacted her the next day.

Soon, they became Olivia's World.

In May 2018, the trio recorded five songs at Terry and Jordan Koop’s The Noise Floor studio in Gabriola Island (The Courtneys, WEED, Versing). Sweet and punchy, Olivia's World's debut song Cereal Boxes aims to be a quick peek into Lica's perennially pop writing sensibilities. Accompanied by Melberg’s pitch-perfect harmonies, bouncy drums and Joe’s melodic bass, Cereal Boxes' lyrics allude to big life changes over the abstract imagery of wet cardboard boxes due for the recycling yard.

Olivia's World debut EP is out in October 2019 via Lost Sound Tapes.

Cheery sounding DIY vibe with a chorus that sticks like Clag in your head.
