My Band! New Olympians is a duo from the Isle of Bute. Mike and Ben grew up on the island and played music together constantly. They played together in various bands until they created New Olympians; a band that shows their love of blues, synthesizers and retro rock and pop. They listened to Beck, The Black Keys, Johnny Cash, Cat Stevens, The Doors and Gorillaz until their ears hurt.

Together Ben and Mike have played on the main stage at the Wickerman Festival, the Islington Academy and have played many times at the legendary King Tuts in Glasgow.

New Olympians is Mike and Ben. Mike plays guitars, keyboards, synths and sings. Ben plays drums, programs samples and synths and mixes the songs. They write songs together and separately.
