When bands like OTHERKIN come along there’s something that stirs deep within my bones, suggesting that there are more guitars than you could shake a whole bushel of sticks at and more energy than that hamster I accidentally fed Lucozade Sport for a week.
This lot seem to have had a fair few drops of the overly-sweet nectar themselves as they thrust themselves head-first into a wall of noise that’s far less painful to crash into than any other wall you’ll ever encounter. These incredibly talented Irishmen know exactly how to get a party started as they channel sounds of The Strokes at their finest, rocking away with a ferocity that only comes with the excitability of youth and the passion for music that’s necessary if you want to make even the slightest dent on the musical world. With something that’s as guitar-driven as this you know exactly what you’re in for within the first 30 seconds of so yet that doesn’t detract even a minuscule amount from how much you should enjoy rocking out to this belter.
Let down your hair, rip up your jeans and jump right into this beauty as if your life depends upon it.
