Welcome to Hyde Out!
Hyde Out is an indie rock band from London, UK, led by Omar Merlo and Jaka Levstek. Omar and Jaka come from broad creative musical backgrounds and have played in several groups around the world. Their musical style and influences are very diverse, ranging from British alt-pop to American folk music, and from pop-rock to hard rock. Their music often tries to gel different styles together, leading to creative and fascinating musical results. Hyde Out make music simply out of passion, looking for new ways to bring to life the sounds that defined their own musical origins. Following a few experimental self-produced demo projects and collaborations, in November 2020 Hyde Out finally released their first studio album, “Smoke and Mirrors”, a collection of original songs showcasing Hyde Out’s varied influences and creative directions. Two songs from that album have done particularly well: “Alive” and “Smoke and Mirrors” (the latter was a semi-finalist in the 2021 International Song-writing Contest). On 27th January, 2022 Hyde Out will launch their second album, "Tunnel Vision", a set of 12 original songs with stronger hard rock influences, opening up yet a new style and direction for the band. Two singles ("When the Winter Comes" and "Armchair Uprise") will precede the launch of the album.
