Far Out is making a conquering return to Seven Lions‘ Ophelia Records with his debut label EP, Beyond The Horizon. Spanning four total tracks, the immersive outing sees Far Out assign vocalists Ally Thorn, RØRY, Heather Sommer, and Monika Santucci to one of each of Beyond The Horizon‘s inclusions.
Touting the melodic touches that Ophelia’s followers have come to know and love, Beyond The Horizon elicits emotion as it engages texture, working with cinematic strings, percussion, uplifting synths, and ethereal vocals. With just one listen, it’s clear that Far Out’s earlier steps—his debut live set at EDC Las Vegas and enlisting as support for Illenium‘s 2019 North America tour—were indicative of his growing presence, now enlarged by Beyond The Horizon.
The EP follows Far Out’s recent set on Jason Ross‘ Insomniac livestream, “The Atlas.” He is also set to take over Ophelia’s Odyssey mix series the week of November 2 to celebrate the release of Beyond The Horizon.
Beyond The Horizon will formally release on November 6, but listeners can stream the EP in its entirety one day early, only on Dancing Astronaut.
