A couple of months ago Scott and Rigby took off to New York City, and things on the Outside World front were pretty quiet until yesterday, when they shared the brand-new track, "Wasting Time," on their Bandcamp page. Drummer Evan Jenkins still lives in Chicago, so on this recording Scott plays drums and performs his usual duties as singer and guitarist. The song shows that the band is growing in a few respects: the arrangement is deliberate and progressive, the production is clean and tight, and the vocal interplay between the two members is sophisticated and pretty. "Wasting Time" is maybe the best Outside World track yet; it's one of three the band has recorded since arriving in New York, and I can't wait to hear the other two. Hopefully that'll be sooner than later.
