Newcomers OUTLYA released their promising ‘Volcano’ EP back in October, and have returned today with a new single.
‘White Light’ is a simply huge return, a polished, chorus-driven smash that deserves to mingle with the radio-bound big hitters.
Talking about the track, the band’s Will Bloomfield says: “White Light is a song about pushing through the darker days that we all find ourselves in some times. Whether it’s faith, love, determination, everyone has a “white light” that offers up some illumination or hope in times of trouble.
“We wanted to take that sentiment and make a physical version of that would make you want to dance. Dancing is this really instinctive raw human expression of emotion and we tried to encapsulate that.”
The band are currently on a UK tour. View the dates and watch the lyric video for ‘White Light’ below.
