The Italian indie alternative rock band Outwave releases today (September 18) their debut album ‘The Storm’ via Seahorse Recordings, which involves a guest appearance by American vocalist and songwriter Durga McBroom (Pink Floyd, Billy Idol, Steve Hackett) on two of the featured tracks, ‘Autumn Trees’ and ‘Resurrection’.
European quartet Outwave may be a new signing to Italian label Seahorse Recordings, but their flavored style of rock music is seasoned enough so that Los Angeles-based vocalist Durga McBroom felt an affinity with this and decided to lend her talents to the album. This is a worthy listen that somewhat mirrors life, some tracks are fast-paced and get your adrenaline pumping, while other slower ballads allow you to kick back with a drink while in pensive mode. A great showing for the band’s debut long-play with music ranging from loud in-your-face rock to Floydian atmospheres, with special consideration of classic Brit pop and Alternative rock stylings.
Let’s groove with the hard-hitting lead single ‘Moving Tangle’, along with dynamic video created by Andrea Bodo. Capturing the synergy of live performance, the band recorded their 10-track debut LP at 2 Recording Studio.
Formed in early 2015 in the Italian city of Padua, Outwave is a quartet of music mavericks comprised of Luca Ceccato (vocals and guitar) Leonardo De Sisti (bass guitar), Giovanni Masiero (drums) and Alessandro Andrian (guitar), the latter joining the band in mid-2015.
With the vibe of a concept album, the storyline here develops progressively through these tracks, telling the tale of the antagonist’s inner journey. Through several transitions metaphorically associated with natural phenomena and sonic scenery, he will be deeply marked and forever changed by this tempest, leading him to a greater conception of life and
helping him realize for how long he had been blinded by the haze of frivolity. The listener can float through a fleeting route and roam through the events and feelings of the protagonist during this trip, experiencing the cusp of daylight, with its liveliness and positiveness, and the ethereal mysteriousness of nocturnal obscurity.
‘The Storm’ LP is now available across digital stores as Apple Music and online platforms such as Spotify.
