🖤🌿 With the countdown officially ticking down to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, Wellington band TOI have paired up with the New Zealand Olympic Team to deliver an uplifting anthem, ‘Ain’t Just Dreaming’, featuring two of the country’s most promising Olympians, cyclist Ellesse Andrews and rower Max Brown. 🖤🌿

'Ain’t Just Dreaming’ came about when Olympic Cycling Silver medallist Ellesse Andrews, Tokyo 2020 Olympian Max Brown and the New Zealand Olympic Committee came up with the idea to write a song that would resonate with their fellow athletes.

With Max having studied music at Jazz School in Wellington with some of the members of TOI, they immediately knew who to turn to help them bring the song to life.🖤

Ain’t Just Dreaming’ is the end result - a soulful, uplifting song that not only captures Max and Ellesse’s journey as athletes competing on the world stage, but a tune that will reach far and wide. 🎶

“A huge part of being a member of the New Zealand Team is the journey you go on to make it this far. This song talks about all the emotions and challenges we go through in the lead up to a big event. This song isn't just for Olympic athletes, it's for all New Zealanders,” says Max.
