A blend of progressive elements, pop-sensibilities & psychedelic undertones. Outside In are: Mikey Brown – Jonnie Barnard – Adam Tobeck – Adam Willis.
‘Outside In’ combines stylistic aspects of Tool, Radiohead, Pain of Salvation, Yes, Genesis, Muse, all the while without sounding like any one of these groups. There are some mellower, ballady moments where Browns lyrics shine and his rich tone warms you all over before abruptly hurling you upward into space, spinning all the way with his wails and falsetto chasing you.
Passages of heavily effected guitar swirls overhead thick grooves between bass and drums. Rich layers of trippy synthesizers in changing time signatures showcase the band’s musical aptitude and unique sound. There is something in this music for everyone, music in this nothing, for all. Take the trip.
“As a group they are well-travelled through strange and wonderful musical places and they are extremely inviting through their display of visuals that provoke an intoxicating blend of distress and comfort.”
