Outside is the latest electro-synth track from Melbourne duo, SENNSES (Trent Broussard and Hayden Gordic). It follows on from their 2020 singles Forever, Save Me and Distant Place each garnering strong reviews from triple j.
With comparisons to Rufus Du Sol, Odesza and Hayden James, Outside fuses the duo’s love of lo-fi house and progressive synths.
Hayden further adds, “For me, this song is all about staying in your own lane, not listening to the noise and not listening to people when they say you can’t do something. It’s something we have lived by from day one, and something that has pushed us forward.”
Outside was mixed by Rob Amoruso, and mastered at Panorama Mastering. Their creative process is never the same for any song. With Trent’s atmospheric vocals, the song takes you on an ethereal journey. Trent says “Sometimes it starts with a melody recorded on my phone, sometimes it starts with a riff or chord progression, and sometimes we literally have an entire song done, and then decide to flip it on its head.”
“Outside’ is about the negative energy that all of us have to deal with in day-to-day life, especially when we choose to pursue a goal/vision. The chorus of the song captures the sense of ‘calm’ you feel when you realise that people’s opinions don’t matter, and that only you can determine your own success.” SENNSES
