On the heels of their brother group, the Duke Pitchforks, Out of the Blue have released their newest album, “Flywheel,” for sale online!
“Flywheel” came out in 2009, to great critical acclaim. On the celebrated a cappella podcast Mouth-Off, hosts Christopher Diaz and Dave Brown gave it rave reviews, praising the album’s “passion, warmth and soul” while asserting that these ladies “hit it out of the park” with their work. Joe Kang, who reviewed the album for the Contemporary A cappella Society of America, praised Out of the Blue for both their musicianship and professionalism. And the Recorded A cappella Review Board gave “Flywheel” near perfect marks in their review.
The album also swept the 2010 Contemporary A cappella Recording Awards, winning Best Female Collegiate Song, Arrangement and Album (as well as runner-up for Best Hip-Hop/R&B Song) against some stiff competition.
Founded in 1980, Out of the Blue is Duke’s oldest all-female group, with a rich history of award-winning work, both in the studio and on the stage. And now you can own their latest achievement for yourself through iTunes!
(Fun side note: Out of the Blue and the Pitchforks, who strongly support one another, even entered into some historic cross-promotion while releasing their respective albums. The Pitchforks featured a song off of “RED” as a bonus track on their album, “Bring It Back.”)
Check out both albums on iTunes, and keep checking back here for more information about all of our amazing artists!
