THE OUTVIEW


Pop Duo, The Outview, are back with their addictive new singleReasonsthat makes a vibrant addition to their growing discography. 


Reasons’ comes out of the gates with vibrant electro-synth tinged vocals that instantly capture listeners' attention. Building on the bold and anthemic vocals that open the song, are an infectious drum beat and rousing pop melodies, that burst onto the sonic landscape with an explosion of colour and energy. With a rhythmic tempo and dynamic instrumental, this all adds to the empowering and addictive nature of the track. 

With poignant lyricism that delivers an overall sense of positivity and affirmation, The Outview explain the universal and introspective message of the song,


“Reasons is a song about listening and validating. It's about coming to an awareness that someone's experiences are different than your own and acknowledging the complexities and difficulties that come with that experience”.


Solidifying their place within the music industry, The Outview have more releases to come; and have already made a bold statement with their unique sound and established themselves as an artist to watch.

RACHEL BOCHNER


Rachel Bochner has released her playfully moody and late night drive anthem 'Pick Me Up' inspired by the cycle of having feelings for someone you're better off without.

DEVAN


Devan has been pursuing a music career since she was a kid; the brazen 10-year-old dropped off a homemade demo - to no avail - at the iconic Olympic Studio, home to Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder and David Bowie. Now in 2020, the Toronto-born/London-raised singer-songwriter is gearing up to release her debut solo project.


Her new single, 'We’re All Gonna Die Anyway', is an R&B-tinged indie-pop apocalyptic love song - life is short and you never know when the world’s going to end, so there’s no point in wasting time with the weird social barriers that often prevent us from telling people how we really feel. 

Devan has spent the last 6 years honing her talents as a songwriter and live performer with Wild Rivers; the folk-pop band that she co-found and co-fronts, boasts over 140 million global streams and sells out venues across North America. The band’s 2019 release, 'I Do', scored Devan the top prize at the International Songwriting Competition placing her in front of judges Coldplay, Dua Lipa, Tom Waits and Bebe Rexha.
