    This is a 1st and very Limited Vinyl Edition of our Debut EP 'Outside Play'. 200 of these 12 inches will be available, with their spectacular original artwork (by our Raphaël Fabre), and handmade numbering.

    This is the real thing. It doesn't get any better than this.

    We're not pressing vinyls for the sake of hype. We worked on a special mixing and mastering especially for the superior vinyl audio specs. And we can tell you it was worth it.

    They complement and flatter the sound that the Stand Out Boys and us worked so hard in the studio to achieve.

Horse Down is first and foremost about a moment.

When we got in the studio, we were not supposed to record it. It was brand new, still had a shaky structure and wasn't that ready overall. (We've got a wonderful demo version we keep for later btw).

But we worked on it during the takes. And one unsober Saturday night, Mat (our beloved sound engineer) plugged a few mics and recorded a couple of very drunk guitar/voice live takes. It gave Horse Down its human and organic core warmth we just love...

Quentin then laid down a few backing vocals and Raph' came up with this piano and weird beat thing, forging this lovely bit of music...


Four values
Four flavours
So sharped and sophisticated
In order to clear the dust away

Time for serious matters
For all those brave people
Who open-hearted gave themselves away
The only solution, it coasted much

I killed the greatest horse of the horse down
I let daily routine cut my wings down

So I got it and I bounce
From phenomenons to strange appearances
I'm so glad and it makes me laugh
Not healing my own grief though

Then I pay the price
Of this kind of life
Pretty different so different from
The horse down's

I killed the greatest horse of the horse down
I let daily routine cut my wings down

I killed the greatest horse of the horse down
I let daily routine cut my wings down
