Trillion / Outsides
Outsides is the moniker behind Tim Ellis, a singer, songwriter, and producer based in Kansas City. His music combines catchy melodies with ethereal and dream-like textures, with influences as diverse as M83, Twin Shadow, and Bleachers, among others.
The project’s debut release, “Million,” burst onto the scene with its lush, synth-driven pop anthems, while the follow up record, “Billion” explored different influences, from alternative rock and pop, to further excursions into deeper electronic nuances. As an artist, Tim Ellis is always open to expanding his creative horizons, and expanding the project’s sonic portfolio with new ideas, keeping his music fresh and appealing. On Trillion, Outsides is pioneering the feel and sound of synth-country, combining the songwriting qualities and lyrical themes of country music, with astonishing electronic soundscapes and throwback new-wave elements.
Outsides’ work has been praised by high-regarded publications, such as The Chicago Tribune, The Burning Ear, Panic Manual, only to mention a few. Currently, Outsides is gearing up to release its third album, “Trillion,” available online September 27th, 2019.
