Check out this awesome new tune from The Outer Vibe- “Shining Like a Diamond”.
Through their music and live performance, The Outer Vibe captures a “Big America” energy that is larger than a 1960s Detroit assembly line. Their sound is a collage of the motor city’s passion and power, the upbeat, good feelings of the West coast, and a cinematic southwestern nostalgia, a blend they like to call “surf disco.” The familiar, organic music supports a positive lyrical message of perseverance, maintaining relationships, and a carefree lifestyle.
The Outer Vibe’s latest music was created in collaboration with producer Brad Dollar (Grateful Dead, Keb-Mo, The National) and mastering engineer Joe LaPorta (The Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Vampire Weekend) and will be released in early 2015.
They filled their studio with dusty vintage amps and keyboards and vintage-modeled microphones to accurately capture the sounds they desired.
When asked what the new music sounds like, the band’s immediate response is, “Clint Eastwood drinking a pina colada while listening to Dick Dale.” Offering a more introspective explanation, Dollar says, “When I listen to the latest batch of The Outer Vibe productions, I feel like I’m on a vacation I don’t want to leave. The guitars feel like a Cheshire smile on a sunny beach, the drums beat like perfect waves on the shore.
Everything stays glued together with sticky-sweet vocals, trumpets sounding from the west, and bass sounds that walked down from another planet. All at the same moment providing reflection and rejoice.”
Their new music is a follow-up to their 2012 album “Hoka Hey”, which independently achieved much success, getting top 5 request at radio in Michigan, Wisconsin and the Dakotas and licensing from ABC News’s “Good Morning, America” and West Michigan’s Baker College in 2013.
