It's no surprise a lot of people are feeling a little anxious in these uncertain times, but North Carolina outfit Weston Estate is here for you.
The rising five-piece has just released their new song "Outside," and it's a perfect anthem for those of us feeling the tension of life or maybe those of us who are just excited to be spending more time...outside.
"Similar to some of our other songs, we made 'Outside' at a time of uncertainty and naïveté in all of our lives," says the group. "This song was an outlet for us to let go of our anxiety and have fun/appreciate the things that we have. The beachy guitar and the snappy drums work together to capture an effervescent energy that audiences can easily latch onto and fall in love with."
They add: "After the growth we’ve had in the past six months alone, both personal and professional, releasing 'Outside' now means more than the warm energy it puts out. Rather, this song represents an overarching lesson that all of us have learned this year: to take advantage of all the opportunities we have right now and live our lives to the fullest while we’re still young. We don’t know where the future will take us, but we’re excited to take it on together, headfirst."
The band is made up of longtime best friends Srikar Nanduri (guitar), Manas Panchavati (vocals), Tanmay Joshi (vocals), Abhi Manhass (production, bass), and Marco Luka (vocals), all of whom are currently college students who have known each other since they were 14. They called themselves "Weston Estate" in jest for an affluent neighborhood adjacent to their hometown of Cary, North Carolina.
This new song has some sweet, Khalid-meets-Daniel-Caesar vibes. Check it out below.
