The Official Recoil Website



Olivia’s new album ‘Data Regina’ was recently completed and is now ready to be unveiled. The project was inspired by the reigns of Mary Queen Of Scots and Elizabeth I – two queens, cousins, ruling simultaneously over this small island. The album represents a body of work which encompasses electronic songs – ‘The Antechamber’ – along with a series of instrumentals – ‘The Battles’ – all forming a veritable sonic landscape inspired by the 16th century conflicts on the Anglo-Scottish border.

As well as a CD (in a deluxe DVD-sized digipak) there is a dedicated website to contextualise the music and shed some historical perspective on its subject. Embedded there is also a series of 3D animations. The site is well worth a gander.
