Taken off their 4-track release named ‘Ab Initio‘ and featuring excellent vocals with some terrific solos, The Out Seer are at their best with a new song all about wondering why being happy is so hard these days on, ‘Good Feelings‘.
Formed by their guitarist Ashley Pearce aka Pearcie, The Out Seer is a Vancouver, British Columbia-based 4-piece indie-rock band that makes a deliciously memorable type of riff-packed music to dance with.
”They are an active and educated group of young musicians, each carrying a diploma from Selkirk College’s Contemporary Music & Technology Program.” ~ The Out Seer
The Out Seer are the type of band that you tell all your mates about as you plan the evening’s adventures while making a stop at the local rock venue. Their music is rather ear-warming as you might need a second listen, to truly get inside their superb style that draws you in as all the great bands do.
‘Good Feelings‘ from Vancouver, British Columbia-based indie-rock outfit The Out Seer is one of the catchiest (in a good way) tracks you might dare to listen to this year. With a scintillatingly skilful lead singer, powerful guitars and lyrical honesty that is rather rare these days, this is a new single to be totally enthused by. This is rock music at its most exciting in the underground, as we are swept in by a song that might be caught in your mind for ages as you hum this tune in joyous unison.
Hear this tremendous new single on Bandcamp and see more news via their IG page.

One of the trickiest aspects of mixing different audio tracks together is creating a sense of space. The goal is to have every sound belong in its place with as little contention as possible. While recording one’s own music has become more commonplace than ever in history, it should still be noted that the presentation of that sound is every bit a work of art as the sound itself and the intention behind it. Wildfire by Ryne Meadow is a song that you can appreciate for many things, but it can never be felt in its fullest without a stereo setup. Break out the nicest headphones or set of speakers you can find; this is worth it.
Ryne’s lyrics are touching and vocal performance is expressive and honest. Couple this with well-timed sparkling highs and full, commanding lows in the instrumentals and you’ve got quite a landscape. The real spectacle however, comes from the panning. Hearing parts bounce left and right across your mind as you meld yourself into the space created is a fun and immersive way to experience this song. Wildfire is passionate, but not explosive. It’s spritely, but not shrill. It’s warm, but not naïve.
This is a song that evokes good feelings that come from beyond the surface, and that’s something that a lot of artists will admit is no easy venture. Ryne Meadow effortlessly portrays a vulnerable and yet secure character in this song. It’s a song that feels like someone you can trust. Hopefully we can trust that there’s plenty more on the way.
