OUTLYA - Heaven

‘Heaven’ is absolutely huge, and a frighteningly composed, ambition-filled next step from a band so new.

Newcomers OUTLYA have said that both Weezer and Taylor Swift have influenced their new single ‘Heaven’, and there’s an almost ridiculous list of styles employed across their fresh, bright new cut. Like if Bastille decided to lob a huge, dirty guitar solo onto their stadium-filling synth-pop, ‘Heaven’ is absolutely huge, and a frighteningly composed, ambition-filled next step from a band so new. “If no god can save me, I’ll carry the weight alone,” vocalist Will Bloomfield belts out, before a chorus full of invigorating, battle cried backing vocals burst through, ensuring the trio won’t be outlyas for much longer. It’s not quite the biggest banger ever released that’s called ‘Heaven’ (that title is, and always will be, reserved for DJ Sammy, sorry), but OUTLYA come pretty close, and will be flirting with the charts sooner rather than later.
