“With the next chapter of the band, we felt the urge to change up our sound and make something a bit more dynamic, something fresh. So we decided to take some elements of the tension, challenges and stress from the last few years and do something creative with it; music that feels new and exciting to us, that might surprise people and also confront our own expectations of what we can do. All that remains won’t be the same.” - OTHERKIN, January 2019
Praise for OTHERKIN:
Consequence Of Sound: "Despite its title, “Bad Advice” certainly feels like a good time. It’s a hook-filled thrasher that blends the attitude of The Clash with the peppier pop-leaning moments of earlier The Libertines."
Clash Magazine: 'Matching feral grunge riffs to uproarious, hugely infectious songwriting, new single 'Ay Ay' is nothing less than a total banger.The sound of a young band truly coming into their own.'
NME Magazine: 'OTHERKIN play natty Britpop. Debut single 'AY AY' is more 1996 sounding than an overdriven VOX AC30 and Epiphone Rivera combo, calling to mind early Oasis. If their live show is half as rowdy they'll blaze a helter-skelter trail on the toilet circuit."
The Independent: "Basically they're just a big mass of energy - four guys who write hugely infectious tracks with rough, snarling vocals and grunge riffs."
Fred Perry Subculture: "Otherkin are a four-piece punky new-wave pop band from Dublin, who manage to channel all the raucous spirit and energy from the last twenty years' worth of British guitar bands."
