I stumbled upon spacey Liverpool rock group Outfit when they released “On The Water On The Way,” a song that prompted me to listen to their forthcoming album, Slowness, in its entirety several times that same night. The English five-piece band crafts the kind of intuitive, wavy psych-rock that seems to waft in-between phases of matter. “Framed” especially, which they’ve shared today, zips along on a rock-solid backbeat, but also melts into foggy, amorphous keyboards and frontman Andrew P. Hunt’s mesmerizing trickle of a voice. It’s a song about craving structure that flits across its own boundaries, deconstructing the desire even while articulating it. Listen.
Slowness is out 6/15 on Memphis Industries. Pre-order it here.
