OUTER. Intimate, soothing and mesmerizing. A sheep farm in Bárðardalur, northern Iceland. That’s where Belgian producer Tom Soetaert found the perfect background for songwriting, recording and visuals. The music is often situated between modern classical, ambient postrock and electronics. “Sunday night music” might be the most accurate description.
The self-titled debut album was presented in a sold-out Minard theatre in Gent. The intimate vibe on the record is perfectly translated to the live show, thanks to carefully selected visuals and musicians. Resulting in an immersive total experience.
The album was released on Swedish piano label 1631 Recordings (20 Sept 2019), and approved by BBC Sound’s Stephen McCauley and KEXP’s Alex Ruder.
