Watch & Listen
After a performance at Lollapalooza the Chicago Tribune called "transcendent", Singer Tim Ellis geared down to dedicate his time to his new project, Outsides. Having relocated from Chicago to his boyhood home of Kansas City, he found himself charting a very different course for the music. Recording in his bedroom, Ellis toed the line between organic and electronic production, writing guitar parts that were ultimately sampled and woven together with a battery of synthesizers. The result is an ambitious collection of huge sounding pop gems in the vein of modern bands like M83, Toro y Moi, and Passion Pit that dip their toes in shoe-gaze, psychedelia, as well as r&b and dance music but never lose the pure exuberance of a pop song.
Singer and guitarist for The Paperclips.
Saint Lux is a re-birth of the former band Sleep Dreamer; started in 2008 from members John McFarlane, John Moessner, Denis Sawatzky, and Tanner Laird. The band formed on the campus of Mid-America Nazarene University, where they attended school. Three of the original members have since graduated and with that so has their writing.
