ABOUT 'WE OUT HERE' (released Feb 9th 2018)
Across the album and the groups which make it up, genre markers matter less than raw, focused energy. Surveying the record’s running order, it could easily serve as a name-checking exercise for some of London’s most-tipped and hardworking bands of the past couple of years. Recorded across three long, fruitful days in a North West London studio, the results speak for themselves: they’re a window into the wide-eyed future of London’s musical underground.
A reflection of how London’s jazz-influenced music has reached outward into new spaces, the sound of the record draws from a wide pool. There’s plenty of crossover between each of the groups, too, speaking to the close-knit circles which make up the scene; shared line-ups reflect the mutual cooperation and DIY spirit which are second-nature.
The sound system is kindly provided by the amazing EPA Sound.
They do some of the best sounding PAs out there, if you've been to TRC in the last 3 months then you'll know what we're talking about.
