One third of Test Icicles, Sam Mehran, releases a collection of works. Whilst his former band mates (Rory Atwell andDev Hynes) have been producing and working on counteless high-profile side projects, we've been privately enjoying Sam Mehran's intrepid foray into his alter ego Outer Limitz notably with the song I Kontakt. Now dropping the Z in favour of an S, Sam launches a full public assault by consolidating his Singles, Demos & Rarities into one edition for you all to enjoy as well.
'I feel like I have many stories ahead of me. Over the past few years I've learnt that people are people and music is music and I can't really judge or say I believe deep down that one this is genuinely better than another, Life is just so crazy. I used to think I was an alien, but Earth has been such an epic experience that I'm now glad to call it home. But who knows, maybe one day I'll leave and realize that home was some place else.'Sam Mehran
This compilation represents the perfect portal into a special artistic imagination, a thrilling outsider-art artefact and even more reason for excitement regarding whatever Mehran dreams up next.
