Nothankyou is collaboration between Olga Bell and Tom Vek. Hailing from opposite sides of the Atlantic, Bell and Vek first met over mid-aughts Myspace during what Tom refers to as "a window of about a week when I was speaking to people over social media." They kept in touch, seeing each other every few years in Vek's London or Bell's New York, until eventually, inevitably, they found themselves at the same Creators Project party in Brazil.
Olga asked if Tom was working on any new tracks. Tom played her a rough instrumental. Thumb drives flashed, flash drives hummed, Myspace rolled over in its grave, and back in Brooklyn Olga added topline and keyboard parts before sending the track back to Tom. After a few exchanges they had one finished song. After a few more, they had two. This single represents the duo's sum works to date, but more may come, especially if you are polite and firm.
