OUTFIT ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM SLOWNESS; SHARE NEW TRACK ‘GENDERLESS’
Slowness RELEASED 15TH JUNE 2015 ON MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES
At the beginning of last year, Outfit found themselves scattered across two countries and three cities, separated by life and love from each other and from those closest to them. Slowness, the band’s second full length LP due 15th June 2015 on new label home Memphis Industries, is the sound of its five members snatching intensive weeks to plant themselves in one place, with the tensions of touring, moving, and transatlantic relationships still weighing heavy in mind, to create an album with bold presence.
Slowness paints a portrait of distance using haunting piano, piercing synthesizers and guitars, all underpinned by Outfit’s trademark rhythm section. It dwells on physical distance between lovers, the emotional distance when we return, and the ways in which we imagine each other thousands of miles apart.
Today, to celebrate, the band have shared ‘Genderless’, the first taster from the new album, a song that builds to an intense climax before falling apart. Says vocalist Andrew P M Hunt: “This song is about feeling disconnected from your body and your sexuality almost to the point where your self disappears completely.”
The album is available for order on limited edition blue/white swirl colour gatefold vinyl (with download) exclusively from www.outfit.band and select indie stores plus cd and download. All orders from www.outfit.band and iTunes come with an instant download of ‘Genderless’.
