Brand new Warner Music signing Outsider has released his first single ‘Míol Mór Mara’ through the label’s W Songs.

‘Míol Mór Mara’ finds the Irish singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and punk poet leading with driving guitar and bold thoughtful vocals, reminiscent to the likes of Bruce Springsteen or The War On Drugs. Featuring lyricism in both English and Gaeilge, which come from his Irish heritage, the Dublin singer also pulls together orchestral strings and a punk-influenced rhythm on the new single.

‘Míol Mór Mara’ means ‘sea whales’, and translates literally into English as ‘giant beasts of the sea’. Regarding the single Outsider says, “The song is about a child with down syndrome I worked with when I was suffering from huge heartbreak and it had a profound influence on my life. The kid was so inspiring and pulled me out of a dark place really just by spending time with him. It's got a lot of biblical references to Jonah and The Whale, which is symbolic of diving into the sea of the unknown and becoming something far greater than yourself in a spiritual sense."

The song is featured in the soundtrack of FIFA ’18 out today, and marks the first time ever that the Irish language has been introduced into mainstream video gaming. His music has also recently been featured in the Netflix’s Shadowhunters.

Outsider takes his name from the song by the Ramones and Colin Wilson’s controversial book The Outsider. His songwriting is deeply thoughtful and enticingly intelligent, matched by rich Americana-tinged guitar music, is set to captivate hearts and minds across the globe.

‘Míol Mór Mara’ is a fast-paced track filled with an energy similar to Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark’. Don’t pigeon-hole the Galway native though, as his way with words is nothing short of beautiful and poetic. While backed by a strong bass and an entrancing hook on each verse, the whole composition of Outsider’s ‘Míol Mór Mara’ is a stunning track you won’t want to end.- JACKS 2017

Outsider is a true talent to behold and from having listened to the debut EP I can foresee a bright future ahead of him- MusicIsMyRadar 2017

Literally meaning "sea whales" in Irish Gaelic, the song leaps away from the dulcet tones of the water world creature into a pit filled with bubbling pop, Bruce Springsteen, and enough shoulder shaking goodness to see us through until December 2018. "Míol Mór Mara" is a fab introduction to an artist who also counts Billy Idol, T Rex, and Johnny Cash as influences, promising a diverse repertoire and - as someone recently signed to Warner's subsid label, W - more material to come -Drunken Werewolf 2017

Once you hear the song, it’s instantly obvious why it was chosen - fast paced and energetic, it's ideal for running to. With a punky drive and rushing gait, Bruce Springsteen or The War on Drugs are instant comparisons-Hotpress 2017
