In November 2015, OUTLYA (pronounced Outlier) started a journey that saw them ditching subtleties and self-conscious songwriting for perfectly-crafted bombast. Since then, theyve been making songs that strive for a feeling of escape and have a striking quality to them.

They could make the most bare, desolate scenery look golden. Take the lyric video for debut single The Light a blindingly bright, neon-pink television set rests on the stones of a miserable, winter-stained beach. Thats the spirit of OUTLYA theyre a shot of light in the dark. Thats how we see the music. We dont see it as this sombre thing that you lie down and take in. Its not introspective, asserts Will.

Having spent 2016 writing, recording, listening to obscure and classic records for inspiration and going to as many gigs as possible, OUTLYA refined early ideas into bigger goals, and theyve decided that regardless of outside involvement, theyre going to be hands on with every aspect of the project. It sounds obvious, but weve collectively decided it makes sense for us to do as much as possible, Will states. Everything from the music to the visuals to existence of their own fantastical island stems directly from the trio. Were fortunate enough to make this stuff ourselves. We dont have any excuse not to.
