Words: Saam Das
Interestingly, Port Isla's 'A.L.I.V.E' (a solid #24 in my top tracks of 2015) threw in a huge-sounding chorus about how the band "never look back", and now a new chapter has begun for the band. Check out their fresh start on 'Higher' and 'The Light' below.
OUTLYA already have a whole raft of dates lined up on the UK festival circuit this summer, and their take on pop should lead to plenty of attention. Shades of Bastille and Mumford & Sons seep through in the soaring, anthemic elements of 'Higher' but there's also a harder edge as demonstrated on debut track 'The Light'. A potentially potent mix for crossover success.
