Duke University’s Out of the Blue is one of the most celebrated and respected all-female a cappella groups in the nation. A large part of their esteemed reputation stems from the consistent high quality of – and critical acclaim given to – their albums. Today, they have released their newest album, “Still Point,” for digital download, and we can assure you that it offers a cappella fans the same brand of stirring, scene-setting music they’ve released since their inception in 1980.
“Still Point” is Out of the Blue’s eleventh studio release, and it continues the group’s long-held traditions of energetic and eclectic recorded a cappella performances. The group winds seamlessly through eleven varied tracks, offering the same stunning execution to songs by Janelle Monae (“Violet Stars Happy Hunting!!!“), Stevie Wonder (“Superstition“), and Muse (“Undisclosed Desires“), despite their varied genres.
This album also finishes out with their very first original composition (“***“). In a sect of music dominated by cover songs, “***” is a breath of fresh air (in addition to being a stand-alone amazing track). Overall, “Still Point” is an historic and ground-breaking release for Out of the Blue that, at the same time, holds true to what has made them unique over the years.
Out of the Blue is Duke University’s oldest all-female group, with a rich history of award-winning work, both in the studio and on the stage. They’ve garnered recognition through appearances on multiple BOCA (Best of College A cappella) CDs and nominations and awards in the CARAs (Contemporary A cappella Recording Awards). Their live show is also something to behold, bringing them to locations near and far, including Duke basketball games, Club Med, Carnegie Hall, SOJAM, and even Turkish Television. Out of the Blue values, above all else, the opportunity to bring their all-female excellence to audiences the world over. The digital release of “Still Point” is a great step in that direction.
