Iain McLaughlin & The Outsiders
Iain McLaughlin has lived in Inverness most of his life and in recent years has established himself as an integral and dynamic part of the city’s musical environment as a performer, producer and founder of independent label IMOUT Records but is perhaps best known for his role fronting The Outsiders.
Having spent the last few years in the producers chair at the helm of projects with Dr. Wook, Lional, The Little Mill Of Happiness, The Strives and Robin Abbot to name a few, the release of single “Salvador" in September 2018 – the first new material from the Inverness post-grunge noisemakers since 2014’s "Falling Through The Dark" EP - marked a re immersion of the band into the live environment and the first of four tracks to be released in the coming year.
It’s the live environment where the band’s reputation has been earned. A mesmerising simultaneous aesthetic blend of exhuberance and fragility, light and dark and an unashamed and honest exposure of the highs and lows of the Human Condition infused into a wall of sound that crashes over audiences in great sonic waves.
A sound that draws on the big skies and wide horizons of the North Of Scotland, music that could only come from where it was made.
