Following their tenacious introductory single ‘The Cloud Bursts’, we’re delighted to bring you the exclusive premiere of the new single ‘Absent Friends’ from London-based 5-piece The Outside Chancers.
“Absent Friends is a drinking toast. We probably all wistfully wonder now and then whether those who’ve gone before us might be looking on – it’s common to people of all faiths and none. Plus there’s always something slightly indefinable about being where the land meets the sea.
It’s a duet we sang together round a couple mics, June and Johnny style – it’s nice to record live as much as possible.”
The Outside Chancers bring a wealth of experience to the thriving Country/Americana scene, having worked individually with the likes of Logan Brill, The Wandering Hearts and The Worry Dolls. Guitarist and songwriter Dan has even had music featured on the hugely popular Nashville TV series.
Adding even more strings to their bow outside of the country genre, vocalist Jen has performed alongside bands such as The Vaccines and Billy Ocean, with keyboard player Natalie regularly touring as a backing vocalist for Goldie. Natalie can also boast her own top 10 album release as a solo artist.
The Outside Chancers will be appearing at the inaugural British Country Music Festival at Winter Gardens, Blackpool this weekend.
