Outbanders Enter Statosphere with Debut EP 'Emergent Patterns'

Outbanders Enter Statosphere with Debut EP 'Emergent Patterns'


 Local musicians, Zak Angelle and Brandon Valosek of the Austin duo, Outbanders, have aimed for a distant universe on their new 3-song EP, Emergent Patterns. A deep pulsating bass serves as the backbone for a symphony of synths, soundbytes, and soundscapes. While retro-dance on the whole may be hackneyed and overdone, the funk rhythms and futuristic signature of Outbanders begs listeners to give this duo a serious listen.

Slow builds coalesce into interstellar supernovas on these three tracks, but its the nuance of atmospheric effects and the bleeps and bloops that fortify the quality. While Outbanders might not have much material to dig into just yet, Emergent Patterns has set a precedent that has stirred the curiosity of its listeners to want more.
