WE ARE THE OUTPOST is seeking to raise a minimum of $1,117 for 10hours of studio time to be engineered with ARIA nominated/ AMP winning producer Lachlan Mitchell (The Jezabels / The Vines), providing you with a 5 track digital download.

Our ultimate goal however would be to raise $4,650 through some "stretch goals" to provide 50hours of studio time. This would enable us to finish recording 4 NEW tracks and in turn provide backers with a 7 track digital download.

TRANSPARENCY

Our budget:

 $400/day Studio 

 $450/day Engineer 

 $165/track Mastering 

THE FINAL PRODUCT

These new tracks are to be recorded and combined with 3 existing singles: The Motions, Vanity Mirror and Vows. We believe these selected songs compliment each other cohesively in their vibe and story. 

The final product of this project funding goal will provide you with a minimum of FIVE tracks, or if all stretch goals (beyond target) are successful a total of SEVEN tracks will be made available via digital download. 

Each new song is entering the studio with a significant head start! 

Track 1 - Only requires drums and some new guitars (re-tracked to soar!)

Track 2 - Demo produced from a live setting. Studio ready

Track 3 - Pre-production already completed in the studio

Track 4 - Only requires acoustic and vocals. Studio ready

RECKLESS LOVE / PROJECT SAMPLE 

Our full length version of 'reckless love' might just be our greatest work! We can't wait for you to hear it in full colour. Here's a shorter live version to get a taste of things.  

WHY BACK US? 

If you find raw honesty in music refreshing, and love some good story telling, then this project is for you! Songs have the capacity to help us feel a thought, they have power to take us places that we'd never have visited on our own. They can deeply empathise with us, and at times seem to know us like a good friend. They resonate with our own story in unique ways, and offer perspective. And when we listen close enough, we can hear them disclose the sorrows and longings of the human heart. This is why we love songwriting and getting alongside other bands.  

"And it's You I seek, to lift this downcast soul"

REVIEWS 

Four Triple J judges took the time to review our latest single Vows! Here's what they had to say:

  • "Stunning. So easy to get lost in these sounds!" - Celline Narinli 
  • "There's a lot going on here but you've managed to mix a pretty tasty salad out of it." - Lachie Macara 
  • "This soars, doesn't it?" - Dave Ruby Howe

Risks and challenges

If for any unforeseen reason band members have any personal emergencies with booked studio time, this could delay recording from September/October into January. We feel having a release date in July 2018 would create a realistic buffer for any set backs. We would rather beat your expectation and release our music earlier than anticipated, than fail to meet a deadline.
