Slowness

At the beginning of 2014, OUTFIT found themselves scattered across two countries and three cities, separated by life and love from each other and from those closest to them. 'Slowness', the band's second full length LP, is the sound of its five members snatching intensive weeks to plant themselves in one place, with the tensions of touring, moving, and transatlantic relationships still weighing heavy in mind, to create an album with bold presence. 'Slowness' paints a portrait of distance using haunting piano, piercing synthesizers and guitars, all underpinned by OUTFIT's trademark rhythm section. It dwells on physical distance between lovers, the emotional distance when we return, and the ways in which we imagine each other thousands of miles apart. Over the stuttering synths of opener 'New Air', the duelling lyrics of vocalist Andrew PM Hunt and keyboardist Thomas Gorton are rooted in optimism and beckon an unseen presence to join them in a new life, whilst album closer 'Swam Out' sees the band go from beaten and worn down to joyfully triumphant over the course of a song decorated with decaying Skype noises and 1am phone calls. The album's contrasting textures and timbres recall late period Talk Talk and other more expansive New Wave outsiders, but there is a deep sense of modern life to 'Slowness'. 'Slowness' is OUTFIT's most cohesive work to date, a marked progression both sonically and emotionally, capturing the harrowing shock of being in love and apart, and the stillness of staring into screens. Ultimately, though, 'Slowness' sounds like a band coming to terms with themselves as artists and people to create an album that celebrates life's obstacles: a record made between New York, London and Liverpool -- a piece of work compelled by distance.
