Yorn and King met through Linda Ramone, a mutual friend and widow of Johnny Ramone. Yorn met King when King began dating Linda, and they were friends for approximately 10 years before forming The Olms. The two had toured together previously, but later decided to perform a song together after Yorn listened to some of the songs that King had written and the two bounced song ideas off one another. In 2011, they created their first track together in 20 minutes, which later became the single "Twice As Nice", included on their debut album.

The band's first album was released on June 4, 2013 with the official single being "Wanna Feel It". The self-titled album was recorded in King's studio with both artists credited for playing almost all of the instruments on each track. The album was an Editor's Pick on iTunes the week following its release and the song Someone Else's Girl was a Top Tune by KCRW on June 28, 2013. The album has been compared to "easygoing country rock and simple '60s pop" and Allmusic stated that the single "Someone Else's Girl" would have been a hit single in 1966. The album also peaked at #4 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers.

In 2013, Yorn revealed to Rolling Stone and Elle that a second album is already halfway completed.
