With a string of consistently great singles and an EP under their belts, Auckland-based four-piece Outside In have spent the past number of years carving out a unique space for themselves in the world of alternative rock. Their music feels simultaneously immediate and expansive; it’s grounded in rock, but reaches far wider.
Now, with the release of their latest single The Garden of Light, they continue to build themselves as a band to watch. If you’re not already across this band, we strongly recommend you change that now.
On their incredible new single The Garden of Light, Auckland-based four-piece Outside In present a sprawling and captivating slice of prog-rock brilliance.
Throughout the new single, Outside In glide through a captivating blend of prog, alt-rock, and ambience, crafting a sound that’s not quite like anything else currently making the rounds. With vast instrumental arrangements and soaring vocal melodies, The Garden of Light is the kind of track that’ll stick with you for weeks.
Across the song’s five-minute duration, the band pull in myriad sonic directions—they flip seamlessly between minimalistic verses and crunching choruses, never letting the song sit in one place for too long. The result is a truly dynamic slice of music that we guarantee you’ll be unable to rip your attention away from.
The Garden of Light is the latest great release from this New Zealand band, and judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality tunes. Here’s hoping we won’t have to wait long to hear what they deliver next.
