The October Solution

Music Artist The October Solution – Drew Sullivan (Slow Dancing Society, City of Satellites) and Jarrod Manuel (City of Satellites) – originally formed as EO in 2011, releasing two EPs, Breathe Your Air and Somewhere Human, before changing their name to The October Solution in 2013. While the duo operate at opposite ends of the globe – with Manuel based in Adelaide, Australia and Sullivan in Spokane, USA – this independent collaboration was born from a City of Satellites production meet-up in the US, where the pair bonded over their shared love of ’80s and ’90s pop music and shoegaze. The October Solution’s debut album Axis Swim Scar (mastered by Jonas Munk) will see release through Hidden Shoal on 15th April 2015, followed by a deluxe compilation re-issue of their first two EPs later in the year.
