Their music can be defined as melodic alternative pop rock - a mixture of styles rolled into one. In April 2006 the band has recruited the new drummer, Darren Atkinson. In April of the same year this was followed by a BARFLY TOUR of England, opening for Fratellis at Barfly in Birmingham. In 2006 the band released 2 new singles CHALLENGE A PARKING TICKET and EVERYBODY FEELS THE SAME. These songs are showing BLACK OLIVES as a growing band that offers the audience well-crafted and beautifully arranged tunes.
This was followed by another single SAME OLD HOLE/ HERO OF MANKIND, recorded in summer 2007. At the moment BLACK OLIVES continue playing regularly various London and UK venues building up a steady following, as well as writing and recording new songs for the next album. Their sound is continuously changing due to their ability to explore various styles of music. 2) Black Olives is a group of young musicians from Brno, czech republic created two years ago. Their style is closest to hip hop but it also has elements of latino, jazz, funky as well as classical music. This combination creates a unique musical show, created by producer Dallas Wayne.
