Their songs thrived on the drama of the everyday, and their suburban heroes strived for The Big Time, something beyond a Happy Shopper existence, something to alleviate the monotony of a humdrum 9 to 5.
To me it's not good enough just to say that life's boring but we have to keep our heads down and get on with it, I like people who struggle against the tide and do what they'd like to do, to try and make their life better.
The title itself is a reference to a large mountain range the size of the Alps that is hidden under the snow and ice of Antarctica. This metaphor is not only extremely apt for the music within but for the band themselves as I have a feeling that once people start connecting with this album, Thought Forms will not be hidden for much longer.
Philippe Cohen Solal and Mike Lindsay will release OUTSIDER, an EP of three astonishing pop songs from the forthcoming album of the same name, inspired by America’s most celebrated Outsider artist Henry Darger - whose lyrics written over 50 years ago, have been set to music for the first time and brought into the present day. Darger’s art has also been lovingly and faithfully reproduced across all the OUTSIDER visual assets.
