Gun Outfit announce February European dates

Gun Outfit announce European dates, share video for "In Orbit" from their latest release 'Dream All Over'

On their latest release Dream All Over, Gun Outfit perfect their incandescent sonic signature: a dusky, canyon-cult blues fueled by melodic dual-guitar weaving and seductive male/female incantations at zero hour. It’s the nocturnal sound of desert-damaged L.A. burnout, a soured American surrealism in rock and roll creole: white line fever, paint fume flashbacks, a stranger wading out alone into the black surf. Featuring Henry Barnes of Man Is the Bastard/Amps for Christ.

The band embark on an extensive European tour in February, playing multiple dates in the UK, with gigs in Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, Cardiff as well as a headline show at London’s The Lexington on 17 February.

A filmmaker as well as a musician, the video for “In Orbit” demonstrates Dylan Sharp’s more experimental side, as he explains: “An experimental video that depicts alien lifeforms disintegrating into washes of colors. An exploration of the glimmering surface of the veil that separates us from the emptiness of sea and space. We made an agreement not to penetrate too deeply. Shot on Hi 8 and Super 8 by Dylan Sharp. With Lilah Slager Rose.”

The members of Gun Outfit, all of whom have made or worked on their own and others’ low-budget, homebrew art films in various capacities, draw from the syntax and systems of cinema, in two senses: the songs on Dream All Over invoke imagistic memories and unfold like dreams unremembered upon waking, but they also rely on staunchly collaborative team processes. The unmistakable rhythm section of Daniel Swire (drums, percussion) and Adam Payne (bass, also of Residual Echoes) fuel Dylan Sharp (guitar, vocals, banjo, balalaika) and Carrie Keith’s spacious, enmeshed guitar work with a corporeal throb, and all decisions are democratically decided.
