"Review: Out Like Pluto, Take Cover"

"'Take Cover' isn't just a promising effort or a mediocre preview of what's to come for an upcoming band. 'Take Cover' is a solid album that obviously hasn't hit the right ears yet, otherwise you'd be saying 'Oh, man I totally saw these guys on MTV the other day'." - Lemonade Magazine

"Review: Out Like Pluto, Take Cover"

"The band is more than proficient, and they seem to have all the ingredients necessary. You couldn’t really get much tighter than this musically." - Skope Magazine

"Single Review: "Bridge""

"... Pop rock newcomers Out Like Pluto are all about music that will get you moving -- and that's immediately evident with their new song,"Bridge." From its initial moments of driving electric guitars and lead singer Kari Tarr's sweet and salty vocals to its percussion-happy finish, this song never once turns off the energy..." - PureVolume

"Looking For A Nostalgic '90s Rush? Out Like Pluto Might Just Be The Answer"

"... Kari Tarr has an enchanting and powerful voice that's the undisputed backbone of the group, and the band's potential for stardom isn't more evident than on "Bridge": the shortest song on Take Care, but easily the catchiest..." - Seattle Weekly

"Out Like Pluto, Electric Villain, Forgotten Pages"

"If No Doubt can achieve success and fame, why not these guys? One of life's great mysteries, I guess..." - Seattle Subsonic

"Tonight in Music: Blame It On The Girl, Cuddle Party [Out like Pluto], and Hugh Cornwell"

"...They are trying to make the poppiest punk, and with odes to John Stamos and Amanda Palmer, they seem to be succeeding. Their blog is an interesting read, as it documents the work a band starting out goes through; with plenty of video and picture of practices and early gigs." - Seattle Show Gal


Still working on that hot first release.



Out Like Pluto is not here to revolutionize music, but they do want to make you dance. Have a listen to their full-length debut album or come out to a show, and it’ll be totally clear: These alt-pop rockers have a blast playing music, and all they want is to make sure their audience does too.

The female-fronted five-piece from Seattle, WA combines the energetic pop-punk stylings of Paramore and Blink-182 with the melodic nostalgia of 90s alternative rock like No Doubt, Garbage and Letters to Cleo. Out Like Pluto's musically diverse, but ultimately light-hearted, repertoire lends itself well to some shenanigans on stage. The band has a reputation in Seattle for delivering unique, engaging, and often hilarious shows. (On several occasions, Out Like Pluto has challenged its bill-mates to pop cover showdowns, for example.) After the now infamous “Ke$h-Off” of 2011, the venue’s sound technician remarked, “In all my years here, I’ve never seen anyone crowd surf in the Jewel Box Theater.” Mission accomplished.

Since 2009, Out Like Pluto has built a rapidly-growing fan base in the Pacific Northwest, and shared the stage with the likes of Nico Vega, Curt Smith (Tears For Fears), This Time Next Year, Hunter Valentine and The Broken Column. Reviewing a show from the early part of 2011, Seattle Subsonic commented: “Given the style and the pretty blond lead singer, the obvious comparison is to No Doubt, but No Doubt was bubble gum in comparison. Songs like “Are We There Yet?” (my favorite) show this well.... It made me wonder. If No Doubt can achieve success and fame, why not these guys?”

Out Like Pluto's debut full-length album, "Take Cover" releases January 10, 2012. This energetic and eclectic full-length was recorded, mixed, and produced by Andy Tyra and mastered by Gavin Lurssen (All Time Low, Blink-182, Alien Ant Farm). Many of these tracks are already popular with the band’s live fan base, and “Take Cover’s” first single and music video, "Bridge," is attracting a lot of interest on YouTube.

The band was formed in Seattle in late 2009 by producer and drummer Andy Tyra and enigmatic microphone jockey Kari Tarr. Once they realized Andy had too few limbs to play every instrument live, they recruited guitarists (and index finger shredders) Mike Pesce and Ben Ahroni, along with the effervescent Aussie, Jeremy “I am not a convict” Hynoski to bring in the low frequencies.

With their new album about to launch and an aggressive touring schedule planned for early 2012, Out Like Pluto is pulling out all the stops to bring their own brand of upbeat fun to as much of this world as possible!
