The Outer Vibe
The Outer Vibe is a musical vacation where everyone enjoys a slice of paradise delivered by the bands feel-good nostalgic and energetic concert experience. Clint Eastwood drinking a pina colada at a Dick Dale concert is how the band describes the sounds and styles of their 2015 full-length release Full Circle, a collection of songs they often describe as cinematic surf disco.
Full Circle was created in collaboration with producer Brad Dollar (Grateful Dead, Keb-Mo, The National) and mastering engineer Joe LaPorta (The Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Vampire Weekend). Upon its release in May 2015, Full Circle was supported by a national tour, along with radio airplay in 11,000 retail stores, commercial radio airplay in 5 midwest states, and airplay on 200+ college radio stations.
Dollar says, When I listen to the latest batch of The Outer Vibe productions, I feel like I’m on a vacation I don’t want to leave. The guitars feel like a Cheshire smile on a sunny beach, the drums beat like perfect waves on the shore. Everything stays glued together with sticky-sweet vocals, trumpets sounding from the west, and bass sounds that walked down from another planet. All at the same moment providing reflection and rejoice.
Full Circle is a follow-up to their 2012 album Hoka Hey, which independently achieved much success, achieving top 5 request at radio in Michigan, Wisconsin, and the Dakotas and licensing from ABC Newss Good Morning, America and West Michigans Baker College in 2013.
