The power of instrumental music

When you hear someone mention ‘instrumental music’, you often think of classical, where the actual instruments are doing the speaking. Although this may have some negative connotations for some naive modern listeners, this is exactly the agenda that ambient rock band, The Outside Illusion, are pushing forward.

Releasing their new instrumental album, Silent Communication, on the 20th May, the band aim to speak to a wider audience of listeners with their emotive rock stylings.

Lead guitarist, Denis Salgado, believes that his guitar can speak just as much as any singer can with words, and this is the aesthetic that drives their music. Denis’ expert fret-work wails and screams, just like any voice might. After all, the voice is an instrument too.

Consequently, The Outside Illusion create an accessible brand of guitar led music, that isn’t just for the guitarists out there; Silent Communication is a highly listenable album, embellished with an electro-ambient edge, meaning that this is moving and emotion-fuelled music for the masses, not the few.

Innovative Experimental Singer & Songwriter Richard Rhys O’Brien Releases New Single: “Sense in Our Brains”.

From global economist and futurist to a singer and songwriter producing some of the most memorable songs of recent memory.  Enter Richard Rhys O’Brien, an artist who has yet to fail to inspire thought and emotion with his music, a kind of pop divorced from time and space.  O’Brien recently released his new single “Sense in Our Brains”, clearly in the same vein as some of his earlier work like “Cloud on the Horizon” and “It’s a Dangerous World”, but with an impact and impression all of its own.

In addition to his trademark vocals, O’Brien’s colleagues show their immense talent on the new single as well.  Bruce Knapp’s guitar complements O’Brien’s keyboards expertly, Callie Howard’s ethereal backing vocals never fail to deliver and the steady rhythm of Tony Shepherd’s drums and Richard Sadler’s bass continues to be the foundation of O’Brien’s musical expression.
