OUTLYA have been touring extensively this year, including support slots with Norwegian pop princess Dagny, Pharell’s protégé Maggie Rogers at Brixton Electric, Bad Sounds at Scala and Gabrielle Aplin not to mention UK tours with Frances and Dan Croll, alongside a plethora of festival dates over the Summer including The Great Escape, Bushstock, Barn on the Farm, Latitude, Y Not Festival, Standon and Kendal Calling, and most recently Reading & Leeds Festival not to mention their SOLD OUT headline show at Camden Assembly on October 19th.

They’re making bright, wide eyed music that takes you outside of everyday drudgery – and it reflects the band’s own relationship to music. Other artists “make this place that people go to in their own minds,” Will explains. “If you’re a fan of Grace Jones amongst other like minded people, you’re connected. You go to that same place. Subconsciously, the reason it’s so drilled into my brain is because that’s the way I’ve always seen it, ever since I started listening to music, there was always a place to go to. There are artists like Jon Hopkins and Bonobo who make specifically transportative music, but all music has it in some way. I hope ours will do too.”

OUTLYA (pronounced Outlier) are: Will Bloomfield (lead vocals, keys), Willem Olenski (guitar and backing vocals) and Henry Kilmister (drums and backing vocals)
