With the completion of their debut album, Brazilian four-piece The Outs have announced their new single ‘Right Or Wrong’, which is set for release this August.
The band, based for the majority of the time in Rio de Janeiro, have been refining their vintage sound for the best part of 5 years now. Taking influence from classic groups such as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Oasis, The Outs embody these sounds in much of their music – so much so that the band were nominated winners of a 2008 contest judging Oasis cover songs. Their version of ‘Bag It Up’ took first prize in this competition and led Noel Gallagher to stating that they really ‘got to the heart of the track’. The band were shot into the limelight following this, making appearances on MTV Brazil and being featured on the frontpage of the Jornal do Brasil.
The band’s previous single ‘Get Around’ goes some way into demonstrating their vintage pop sound. Despite their Brazilian roots, the band sound as if they have come straight out of Manchester. With punchy electric guitar and percussion, the powerful vocals bring to mind elements of bands like The Who, Oasis and, for more of a contemporary reference, The Black Keys. Single B-side ‘Whatever You Please’ shows the band taking on more of a sombre, thoughtful sound. A drifting acoustic work, the song brings in cultured percussion, a subtle bass line and mandolin.
Now looking towards the release of their debut full-length album, The Outs have unveiled their new single ‘Right or Wrong’. Their revival sound is even more refined in this track and the band’s songwriting talents are plain to see. Combining clever vocal harmonies with tremolo guitar, a discernible Doors vibe is achieved. Melodic hooks aplenty, the track is certain to capture the attentions of 60’s music fans.
The single will be released on August 18th.
