Up and coming producer, songwriter and vocalist, outlnd, continues to ride the wave of successful releases to come out with new track, ‘Feel Love’.
This newest release follows on from a whirlwind of a year for outlnd, seeing many well received singles such as ‘21’ - where the artist paired up with local hip hop duo Otiuh and pop sensation Adrian Dzuke for an energetic feel-good piece that garnered attention from Purple Sneakers and NME. outlnd has also been putting out feelers in the production world; one of his most notable and recent credits was for MALI JO$E’s latest single ‘I Ain’t Scared To Die Soon’. The song got a lot of positive feedback and marked many milestones including: editorial placements from Spotify and Apple Music as well as airplay on Triple J & Apple Music’s radio show ‘The New Australia’. Besides working on music, the musician has also been busy around Perth’s live performance circuit, supporting the likes of COTERIE, Ziggy Ramo and Your Girl Pho.
With all eyes on this quickly rising star, outlnd is back with ‘Feel Love’, a track about the trials and tribulations of a break up. The artist says, “[The song] is about the tribulations I went through over a break up about a year ago. You go through so many emotions so writing it was almost like therapy for me. I just had to get these thoughts out of my head and voice it for my own sanity."
This track was produced alongside JCAL (credits include MALI JO$E, Ziggy Ramo, Tuka of the Thundamentals), who helped outlnd articulate feelings into a musical piece that reflected everything he had to say about the topic. Both parties in the recording studio were able to relate to the fragile subject matter and this brought about a natural synchronicity in the songwriting process, describes outlnd. “I started off with this progression on the guitar and JCAL created this dark sonic landscape around it that built into this big, bass and drum-filled chorus. We just bounced off each other and got most of the song done in that session.”
The track starts off minimalistic in its intro but slowly builds with layered synths and snappy drums that bring out the artist’s notable falsetto vocals on full display. Make sure to listen to this killer track below!
