Bernard Farley’s (aka Outputmessage) latest release, the Quantum Love EP, is out today on Output Noise Records. Member of Volta Bureau and self-described math nerd, the DC-based producer has put together a five tracks which ruminate over the connection between love and physics.
R&B ballad “Tachyons” is a highlight (named after theorized particles that bend the rules of time). Farley sings of a love that once was and how “nothing’s gonna bring it back” despite his stubborn attempts. The result never appears forced. Instead, the track feels simple and earnest. And pretty damn catchy.
Be sure to catch Outputmessage at U Street Music Hall this Wednesday, October 3rd alongside Aeroplane, Tiger & Woods and DJ Provoke. He’ll be playing a special live set to celebrate the release of the EP.
