outsideOUTSIDE, made up of duo Kali & Tali, is excited to be exclusively premiering their single “almostDEAD feat. Yung Bans” today via Substream Magazine! This is their third track released as a duo, and comes off of their debut EP, This Town Killed All MyFriends, due out this fall via Warner Bros. Records. Give “almostDEAD feat. Yung Bans” a spin here: https://bit.ly/2vQUp63.
outsideOUTSIDE sends emotional transmissions reverent of Warped Tour’s golden years through a haze of 808s, trap percussion and nocturnal R&B. Think blackbear re-imagining My Chemical Romance’s TheBlack Parade, and you’re halfway there.
“‘almostDEAD feat. Yung Bans’ is about your former lover haunting every new relationship you try to make. It’s about drowning those feelings in drugs until you feel numb. Even withdrawal doesn’t hurt as bad as knowing you’ll never get that same fucked up, but perfect, love again. You’d rather almost overdose just to feel nothing than let yourself go back to them,” the band shares on the track.
On partnering with Yung Bans, outsideOUTSIDE says, “We felt like Bans was breaking away from theusual scene and creating a sound that was timelessly unique, which made him a perfect fit for the track.”
The Atlanta-based rapper went viral with the release of his single “4Tspoon feat. Playboi Carti” back in 2016, and has immensely grown, partnering with iconic rappers such as Future, Lil Yachty, and Yung Lean since. His hit track “Lonely feat. Lil Skies” was recently featured on the second season of Donald Glover’s FX series, Atlanta.
outsideOUTSIDE made their debut this past Valentine’s Day with their single “Habits,” and within a few months time, it amassed over 300K Spotify streams and landed the pair a deal with Warner Bros. Records.
The band’s overall goal is to make outsideOUTSIDE a place where listeners can come to feel safe, and be relieved of their anxieties, pain, and anything else they’re dealing with or suffering from. Kali says, “We’re mirroring our experiences and showing we’re not perfect. We’re just like you. We go throughthe same things, and we understand. We recognized that kids needed somewhere to go where they could share these feelings, so we offer a sanctuary. You may not talk about it, but you access it at a show or in your room wearing headphones at 4 o’clock in the morning.”
