Yoy may be familiar with Otenki from hearing them on our station or their interviews on The Gunz Show. The Houston-based pop rock band are gearing up for the re-release of their James Paul Wisner-produced EP Kinetic under a new name, The War Outside. The album is due out January 14, and to help get you hyped, we’re offering a free download of the single “Kinetic”! Guitarist Enoma Asowata had this to say about the song:
Kinetic to me is a song about inspiration. Itâ€™s about expressing what motivated us to pack our bags for a month, travel to St Cloud, Florida and spend every waking hour making a record we believed in. Weâ€™re also sharing with everyone that our fans, families and friends are the reasons weâ€™ve stayed a band for so long. Theyâ€™re a direct part of this band and thereâ€™s this great sense of community I think comes through with the track. When youâ€™re in a band you literally feel like sometimes youâ€™re screaming in space. You feel like youâ€™ve given everything you got and thereâ€™s nothing left. Youâ€™ve shed blood, sweat, and tears; you just want to give in. But you canâ€™t because there are people whoâ€™ve connected with you through the music you wrote. Something you put together with your friends now exists beyond yourself and since it has meaning you canâ€™t just let it go. Theyâ€™re our reason to fight.
