‘Keep Away’ by The Far Outs | Debut Album
Exclusive video premiere of ‘Keep Away’ by The Far Outs, taken from their self-titled debut album, out via Rebel Waves Records.
With influences ranging from The Kinks, The Sonics and The Easybeats, the Brisbane, Australia garage rock duo comprising of Phil Usher (ex-Grand Atlantic, also Sacred Shrines) and Jonny Pickvance delivers a loud and unstoppable 60s-influenced garage heavy chock full of blistering riffs, catchy choruses and drums akimbo. Perfect summer party soundtrack to put in all rock’n’roll-loving ears!
The recording for the album was done quickly and the brief was simple. Keep it raw. Keep it fun. Lunch at the Pub. The band were well rehearsed and with a limited number of instruments to consider, the main concern was capturing the lightning radiating from a band making their debut album, with very few concerns other than squeezing a good time out of every passing moment.
The Far Outs played their first show in Fortitude Valley on October 5th, 2020 and have since performed at most live music venues in Brisbane including your favourite bar, and are probably there right now drinking your beers. Drummer Jonny Pickvance (Blonde On Blonde/Fingerless etc.) has been a part of Brisbane’s music scene for long enough to know better. He joins singer/guitarist Phil Usher (Sacred Shrines, Hillsborough etc.) to complete the ultimate party equation.
