For fans of The National and Fleet Foxes, meet your new favourite band, Other Lives. The writing is down to singer/composer and bandleader Jesse Tabish, whose unusual instrumental choices make new album ‘Tamer Animals’ a stunning listen. The band hail from Oklahoma, and it could possibly be the isolation from cities like LA and NYC which has played a crucial factor in the beauty of this second album. Mixing orchestral instruments, harmonies and catchy and beautifully written songs, Other Lives are onto a winner. The production on the record is also extremely good. ‘Tamer Animals’ is released on August 29th on Play it Again Sam.
There is no UK shows planned at present but hopefully later in the year their will be. For now, you can stream the album is full from The Hype Machine. I’m sure theres gonna be lots more to come on these folk!
