Hyde Out is a duo made up of Omar, from Lugano, and Jaka, who hails from Slovenia. Together they play all instruments on their first demo album, Technicolour Ghost. The album consists of 13 original songs written between 2014 and 2018, and mostly recorded in Hyde Out’s own London studio: a converted shed.
Most of the album was recorded at night time, and the song "Nights" catches that mood as it embraces the cold London nights. A music critic describes that song as “a delicate exercise in balance, the wavy and shivering vocals, tangentially immersed in the harmonies, make for a warm evening in front of a fire of your choice. It delightfully builds and progresses from one side of emotions to the other”.
Omar and Jaka have rather different musical backgrounds and tastes, something which is reflected in the eclectic nature of their album. Their album is largely inspired by the music they grew up with, e.g., 1990s rock and pop music, but also earlier folk and blues influences, as their songs subtly try to span different periods and styles in terms of sound and feel.
The album is a diverse mix of songs, that include acoustic tunes like "Nights" and "Bring on", old-school rock/pop ballads like "Rain" and "Fluent in Silence", British-style indie rock songs like “Hollow”, electro-rock like "Open Chain" and "Where do we go from here", gritty, vintage-rock pieces like "Passer-by", “Over this”, "Times" and "Speed Up", and psychedelic folk-rock songs like "Talk to me" (which features mandolins, sitars and even beer bottles in the rhythm section).
